I always enjoyed counting change out. It’s quite relaxing, and once you’ve done it a few times you can get quite quick at it.
With Santander you can pay in cash into one of their accounts from most of their ATMs on the outside of the bank and the funds are available instantly - even if the bank is shut. Very useful for now (transferring it into my Monzo account) until there’s another solution!
thanks so much, and although some may not be willing, I’d be even willing to deposit with a small charge if thats what we need to do in the short-term!
