Donate your leftover currency to Retina UK

Retina UK exists to support people living with progressive sight loss caused by inherited retinal conditions, and to fund pioneering medical research to ultimately make their challenges a thing of the past. Retina UK provide a range of information and support including a Helpline, ‘Talk and Support’ Befriending Service, local Peer Support Groups around the UK and Information Days and Conferences that bring the community together.

Since 1976 Retina UK, formerly known as RP Fighting Blindness, has invested more than £16 million into ground-breaking medical research, and the very first treatment for one of the conditions (RPE65-related Leber congenital amaurosis) has been approved for delivery by the NHS in the UK. This is a treatment for just one of more than 260 conditions, so there is much more work to do!

It is easy to donate your leftover currency to Retina UK. To get started, download and fill out the Retina UK exchange form.

How much of my donation goes to Retina UK?

We donate the complete exchange value plus 5% extra to Retina UK. 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 Retina UK.

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 Retina UK.

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.
