New Clydesdale Bank £10 notes will be sold to raise funds for Hospice UK

Rare bank notes are being auctioned off for charity.

New £10 polymer bank notes from Clydesdale Bank have gone under the virtual hammer to raise funds for hospice care this week.

A limited number of the new notes with collectible low serial numbers are being sold through auction site eBay, with the sale closing at 9pm on Sunday 1 October. All proceeds from the auction will go to Hospice UK.

The first phase of the auction features five pristine notes numbered: 55, 66, 77, 88, and 99. These highly collectible, low numbered notes, will be auctioned alongside serial 250159, a must have for all Rabbie Burns fans.

Further low serial numbered notes will be for sale later in October.

Catherine Bosworth, director of income generation for Hospice UK, said: “We’re delighted to have teamed up with Clydesdale Bank for this auction. This auction provides a great chance for people to own something special and highly collectable while supporting the growing work of hospices in Scotland and the whole of the UK.”

Jacqui Atkinson, partnerships manager at Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks, said: “This is a very exciting project. There is much anticipation around the launch of the new notes and we wish Hospice UK all the very best with their auction of some of the new notes with the lowest serial numbers.”
