Join all the companies, groups, schools and shops who are taking part in our ‘Pound Cancer’ Campaign to help raise essential funds for people in your local area who are living with cancer.

New 12 sided £1 coins are being introduced on Tuesday 28th March, meaning old £1 coins will stop being legal tender. We’re collecting old £1 coins and using them to help fund our support services, so why not get involved?

BBC Weather Lady and Cancer Support Scotland Ambassador, Judith Ralston, has launched our 'Pound' cancer campaign!

“As the new Royal Mint £1 coin is a different size, shape and weight, old round coins need to be spent or exchanged for the new style before their legal tender is withdrawn. To many, £1 is just small change, but added up they can make a huge difference to the services Cancer Support Scotland can provide those affected by cancer.”
Karin Brown, Bank of Scotland’s Local Director for Glasgow

It’s easy to help

All you need to do is register and we'll send you fundraising materials to help you collect £1 coins either at work, at school or with a group you’re involved with such as a golf club or church. Then just ask colleagues, friends and family to bring in their old £1 coins to be donated to Cancer Support Scotland.

Cancer Support Scotland receives no government funding so relies entirely on donations to provide our support services free of charge to people affected by cancer. Thank you for choosing to support us.
