The new currency has inspired people to do something charitable...
The new five pound note has FINALLY arrive in people wallets, but instead of choosing to spend the waterproof currency on something frivolous a wave of people are now choosing to put it towards a good cause.
The spontaneous trend started when John Thomspon took to Twitter to reveal his plans to give the five pound note to charitable causes, and encouraged his followers to do the same using the hastag #fivergiver.
I'll donate the first new five pound note I get to a charity. Will you?— Johnny Five (@JTCHANGINGBIZ) September 16, 2016
Now the trend has actually caught on, and Twitter has become flooded with people who are also keen to do their bit for those in need.
