Supporters Pledge To Give Their #FirstFiver To A Good CauseSeptember 26, 2016 10:30 am
The new Bank of England £5 notes came into circulation at the beginning of this month and if you are lucky you may already have one!
There are many ways in which you can choose to spend the note however John Thompson (@JTCHANGINGBIZ) had the fantastic idea of asking Twitter users if they would be willing to donate their first £5 note to a charity of their choice.
I’ll donate the first new five pound note I get to a charity. Will you?

John’s idea quickly caught on, and since then people have been sharing their choice of organisation using the hashtag #FirstFiver

When I finally get the new £5 note, I’ll buy a coffee and a sandwich for a homeless person with it. #FiverGiver
