Small change can make a big difference

Holiday money

Do you have a drawer or jam jar, filled with foreign coins, left over travel money from your holidays? Would you consider donating it to help us with our work? Dollars, euros, rupees, baht we can take it all! Its really easy too. You can take any coins or currency to any of our shops across London, or donate and send in the post.

Collection boxes

We also collect coins in our handy and stylish collection boxes. If you can host one for us you’re not only helping us raise vital funds but you’re also raising awareness of the work that we do. In the last year your small change has raised thousands of pounds. We have boxes at local newsagents, opticians, bakeries, dry cleaners, clubs and all sorts of other London-based businesses. One collection tin full of loose change could help fund specialist equipment for a mobile resource hub.

Request your box

After requesting your box, one of our authorised collectors will visit you and help you secure the box in your premises. They’ll then visit you on a regular basis to empty the box and collect the coins. We can also provide stickers, posters and certificates for you to display.

No matter if you’re a small or large business, your support is vital in ensuring the Vision Foundation can invest in life-changing projects that transform lives and save sight. Give our Collections team a ring on 0207 620 2066 or email us on collect@visionfoundation.org.uk to talk about your plans.
