Donate your old fivers to Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity

22 May 2017 17:30:22


If you are wondering what to do with any old £5 notes – the Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity has the answer!

Old-fashioned cotton £5 paper notes are no longer considered legal tender after being phased out of circulation earlier this month. But that doesn’t mean your cash is completely obsolete as the Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity is still able to cash in the notes to help boost patient care at Rotherham Hospital and in the community.

Old notes can be donated to the charity, which is run by The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust (TRFT) at any of our fundraising events or in person at the charity office at Rotherham Hospital (on D Level).

Gabby Atmarow, Chair of the Charitable Funds Committee, said: “Every pound raised for the Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity helps the Trust to provide equipment and resources which improve the care we provide to patients and their families. We really do appreciate every donation, however big or small.

“While you may not be able to spend your old £5 notes in the usual way anymore, we would be incredibly grateful to receive any you may have stored in old purses, pockets and collection boxes.”

The Bank of England says more than 50 per cent of old fivers, featuring prison reformer Elizabeth Fry, have already been returned to be destroyed, leaving around 160 million in circulation.

The Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity is currently raising money for its Purple Butterfly Appeal, which will help fund a fourth Purple Butterfly room at Rotherham Hospital. The rooms cost at least £75,000 to install and furnish and provide privacy, dignity and space for patients nearing the end of their life, as well as their families.
