A Thorpe St Andrew supermarket is accepting old coins and cash to help raise money for The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.
Sainsbury's Pound Lane has teamed up with 'Cash4Coins' to raise money for The Royal British Legion allowing customers to donate old coins and notes, and unwanted foreign currency to charity.
Sainsbury's Bank started the service to 220 stores with Travel Money Bureau.
Jason Symonds, store manager said: 'We know lots of our customers come back from a holiday or trip abroad with leftover foreign currency which ends up hidden at the back of a drawer or stashed in a piggy bank.'
Ben France, interim head of corporate partnerships at The Royal British Legion, added: 'Funds generated through the service will help ensure we can continue to provide year-round care and support to the UK's service men and women, veterans and their families.'
