Londoners are the luckiest, finding £14.70 a year, followed by Liverpudlians at £8.40.

Geordies come in third, scooping up a total of £7.70.

At the bottom of the table are Southampton and Norwich, whose residents only find £1.80. Glaswegians fare only slightly better at £2.80.

Cashback firm Quidco, which polled 2,000 adults, said its survey suggests that “although money does not grow on trees, it does line the streets”.

Spokesman Cathal Wogan added: “We might be moving towards a cashless society but there’s still plenty of cash lying around.”


Graham Sanders, 45, of Hackney, East London, says he always picks up money he finds on the street — even 1p coins.

He explained: “I always remember my granny saying if you found a penny and picked it up, all day long you’d have good luck.

“It’s normally just the odd copper, but once I found a £50 note outside a nail salon. I took it inside but surprisingly nobody claimed it, so I kept it.”
