There are so many ways you can get involved and support Chestnut Tree House

Pound for Pound

How many of your old £1 coins do you think you could collect in one of our Chestnut Tree House moneyboxes before they go out of circulation later this year?


The old round £1 coin will cease to be legal tender on Sunday 15 October 2017. After this date old coins can be exchanged or deposited at the bank, but shops, restaurants and other businesses will no longer be accepting them.

We are asking supporters to join in with the #PoundForPound campaign and donate your old pound coins to Chestnut Tree House before they go out of circulation.

See how many £1 coins you can fit into one of our moneyboxes!

Collect your pound coins in one of our moneyboxesIf you contact us by calling 01903 871820 or email fundraising@chestnut-tree-house.org.uk to say you would like to take part we will send you one of our moneyboxes.

  • £35 would enable a child to experience a magical hour in our multi-sensory room
  • £15 would pay for a DVD to enable the children staying at the hospice to enjoy the latest movies

  • £5 would be more than enough to pay for a minute of all of the care services we provide
