Donate your leftover currency to SUDEP

There are at least 21 epilepsy-related deaths each week and many of these could be avoided. SUDEP Action is dedicated to funding the prevention of epilepsy deaths including Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP).

At SUDEP Action, we focus our efforts on the priorities that bereaved families tell us are important:

•    To prevent deaths

•    To be supported

•    To be involved

We have won national and international honours for our achievements to date, but we recognise there is much more work to do.

 There are five key strands to our work:

•    Providing information on SUDEP and the risk of epilepsy

•    Offering support when someone has died

•    Involving people to help effect change

•    Sponsoring research and education to prevent future deaths

•    Capturing data across the UK & internationally through the Epilepsy Deaths Register.

If you have been affected by an epilepsy death, please contact our support team on 01235 772852.

It’s easy to donate your leftover currency to SUDEP. To get started, download and fill out the SUDEP currency exchange donation form.


Donate your leftover travel money to SUDEP

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 Datchet office. We will exchange all currency, coins and notes, foreign and domestic, and donate the exchange value plus 5% extra to SUDEP.

How much of my donation goes to SUDEP?

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

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 SUDEP.

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.
