Pudsey's Round Pound Countdown<br>

Pudsey’s Round Pound Countdown Needs YOU!

We challenged the nation to hunt for old round pound coins and donate them to BBC Children in Need. And it’s not too late! 
Hunt around under your sofa cushions, in the car glove box, in the bottom of your handbag, work bag or gym bag. Check your change jars, piggy banks and coat pockets and see how many you can find. 

Once you’ve found them, don’t forget to donate them to make them count! It’s so easy to do; just pop along to one of thousands of drop-off points.

You can no longer spend your old pound coins, but we can still collect them and put them to work helping to change young lives.

How to donate your Round Pounds

You’re never far from one of our Round Pound drop-off points. 

Take your coins to any major bank or building society, or any Post Office, Greggs, Cineworld or Welcome Break. 

Drop them off in any BBC Children in Need collection box you find there. Or if you’re at a Post Office, bank or building society, simply let the cashier know that you would like to donate your Round Pounds to BBC Children in Need.


In partnership with The Royal Mint and HM Treasury

We’re delighted to partner with The Royal Mint and HM Treasury in their drive to get the old pound coins back to the Royal Mint. And we can change lives along the way.
