“I was phoned some time ago by Barclays in Kings Heath by someone checking on their elderly customers, asking if there was anything they could do to help. I said I was concerned about running out of cash during the lockdown. They said I could contact their foreign exchange department and order sterling to be delivered to my home (Telephone: 0345 072 2222 option 1). I tried this out last week and it worked very well. There was no charge for this service.”
