We are recalling all of our collection tins so we can gather the old pound coins from them before they go out of circulation!

If you return your collection tin with the old pound coins in it, you can have a brand new empty one from us. This exchange means we can cash in all the old pounds that have been donated, before it’s too late, and you will get a fresh new tin!

To return a tin you can bring it in to The Square:

Candlelighters, 8 Woodhouse Square, Leeds, LS3 1AD

Alternatively, we can send you a paying in slip and you can take the cash to your local Yorkshire Bank.

If you would like to arrange an alternative method of returning, please contact us:

Email: [email protected]
Phone: 0113 3229283

We are aiming to gather all of the tins that are out and about before the end of August, so please be sure to notify us once you have returned yours.

If you do not have a collection tin but would like one, please contact the details above and we can arrange to have one sent out to you.
