Donate your Old Coins, Foreign Coins and Banknotes to Midlands Air Ambulance

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is working in partnership with Cash4Coins to collect old currency, foreign coins and banknotes to raise funds for lifesaving air ambulance and critical care car missions.

Most of us have old British or Irish coins lying around as well as unused foreign coins and notes from trips abroad and holidays. Instead of this currency going to waste sitting idle in a ‘change jar’ or at the back of a drawer, collecting dust, you can now donate it and help the vital work of Midlands Air Ambulance Charity by making lifesaving missions possible for the pre-hospital emergency service.

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is not part of the NHS and solely relies on the generous donations from the public and local businesses for its daily missions. Each year it costs around £12 million to maintain the three aircraft and the provision of a lifesaving service. Each air ambulance mission costs an average of £2,950. Each critical care car mission costs £288 on average. Since 1991 the charity has responded to more than 72,000 missions. Make lifesaving missions possible by donating your unwanted foreign and old currency.

Hanna Sebright – Chief Executive for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity

“We’re tremendously lucky to be supported by local people and businesses based within the communities we serve. Without their generous support, we simply wouldn’t be able to keep making lifesaving missions possible.

“Patient care is at the forefront of everything we do, which is why all of our aircrew are trained to pre-hospital emergency medicine doctor or critical care paramedic status. This ensures they are equipped and experienced enough to treat some of the region’s most critically ill and injured patients.

“On behalf of our former patients, and everyone at Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, thank you so much for your ongoing support.”
