We can convert your leftover holiday money into dreams!

Dreams Come True have teamed up with us at Leftover Currency to raise funds by collecting spare foreign coins and banknotes. 

It's easy to donate your leftover travel money to Dreams Come True: Simply fill out the charity exchange form and send it along with your currency to Leftover Currency. They will exchange all currency, coins and notes, foreign and domestic, and donate the exchange value plus 5% extra to Dreams Come True and send you a full receipt with an itemised list of the donated currencies.

How much of my donation goes to Dreams Come True?

Leftover Currency donates the complete exchange value plus 5% extra to us: There is no commission; neither do Leftover Currency subtract any fees. You will receive a confirmation email, containing the amount donated and the breakdown per currency. Leftover Currency will share this information with Dreams Come True.

Which banknotes and coins can I donate?

You can donate any coins or banknotes, foreign or domestic: We will exchange whatever currency you send us and will donate the combined exchange value plus five percent extra to Dreams Come True.

If you live in Surrey or East Hampshire you can  also drop your currency into your local Lloyds branch.

Leftover Currency will exchange currencies listed on their website (see here).

All other banknotes and coins will be exchanged against their numismatic value, bullion value or scrap metal value, whichever is higher.

Each coin and banknote helps us to make Dreams Come True for children and young people across the UK.

It helps if you sort the currency before you send it. But if you are unable to sort your currency, don't worry: Leftover Currency will take care of the sorting and counting, free of charge.
