It was recently announced that a new UK £1 coin will enter circulation in March 2017!

This will be a brand new 12 sided coin, meaning that our usual round £1 coins will stop being accepted by shops in October this year.

As this change takes place, could you donate your old £1 coins to Candlelighters? Why not donate an old £1 coin and a new one, to see in the new change?

Call us on 0113 322 9283 to get a home donating box sent out to you!

Alternatively, why not pop into any of the Leeds Building Society or Halifax branches in Leeds City Centre? They all have Candlelighters tins in their branches where you can pop your £1’s in.

Thank you for your support!
