Foreign coins

Just been helping our widely travelled DD2 and her husband sort out ready for a house move and they gave me a bowl and a bag full of coins which they said I could give to any charity I liked.
I counted the, mostly bronze, coins and changed it into £8!
The problem now is I have quite a lot of different foreign coins.
Does anyone know any charity that will accept them please?

Airports often have somewhere you can put them and the proceeds are donated to charity.

Thanks tiggypiro. I had thought of that but I haven't noticed any for a while. I wondered if they'd stopped doing it.
Will make enquiries at our local hospice shop as well.
