Imagine you are told that your child has cancer, organ failure or a genetic disorder that they could die from. It’s something no parent ever wants to hear. Family life is turned upside down and time becomes more precious than ever.
You have to cope with the worry and grief of your child’s illness; trying to keep life normal for brothers or sisters; getting to and from a hospital for treatment which could be many miles away from home, all the while navigating a health system of which you have absolutely no experience.
Through all of this, daily life goes on – trying to hold down a job, doing the weekly shopping, cooking meals, taking brothers and sisters to school… all these things must continue.
Some families really struggle to cope.
Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity pairs each family with a dedicated expert Family Support Worker to help them face and make the most of each new day. Rainbow Trust’s Family Support Workers work with families in extreme and uncertain situations, so that they don’t have to manage alone.
Donate your leftover travel money to Rainbow Trust
Do you have a drawer or jam jar, filled with foreign coins, left over travel money from previous holidays? Would you consider donating that forgotten currency to help fund a good cause?
It's easy to donate your leftover holiday cash; Simply fill out our charity exchange form and send it along with your currency to our London office. We will exchange all currency, coins and notes, foreign and domestic, and donate the exchange value plus 5% extra to Rainbow Trust.
How much of my donation goes to Rainbow Trust?
We donate the complete exchange value plus 5% extra to Rainbow Trust. There are no fees, neither do we subtract any commission. You will receive a confirmation email, containing the amount donate. We will share this information with Rainbow Trust.
Which banknotes and coins can I donate?
You can donate any coins or notes, foreign or domestic. We will exchange whatever currency you send us and will donate the combined exchange value plus five percent extra to Rainbow Trust.
We will exchange currencies listed on our exchangeable currencies page against the exchange rates shows.
All other banknotes and coins will be exchanged against their numismatic value, bullion value or scrap metal value, whichever is higher. It helps if you sort the currency before you send it. But if you are unable to sort your currency, don't worry. We will take care of the sorting and counting free of charge.
