I found the prices in UK a little bit strange. Buy something and you will drown in change. I mean if the price is 5.94 pounds you get 4 coins of 1 penny each. A few purchases later, my handbag was full of small change that was unfamiliar. Try as I might, I could not get rid of them at the speed at which they were coming.
So, finally when I took the flight back home, I still had a lot of loose change. Then I spotted a good thing. Along with the Bose headphones (that don’t work at times) was an envelope where BA in collaboration with UNICEF was asking to give the loose change (that is anyway useless for me at my home destination) for the fund. So that is where all the loose change went from my handbag. I believe this is a really good idea.
