Anyone need GBP? I want to swap for USD and/or EGP (Cairo)

Hi Guys, I have my funds in GBP whereas I need USD and EGP - in case anyone in Cairo has an account in the UK and wants to swap directly at the mid-market rate per and avoid commission etc, let me know! (I know I could also go to an ATM with my UK bank card, not asking for advice about that...) I've also looked into using to convert my GBP in my UK account into USD and/or EGP in my Egyptian friend's account here, but apparently they don't offer that service here.... I have done this previously with fellow expats in Ukraine who were earning local currency, but needed GBP for their expenses back home - I did the instant transfer to them via Barclays Online Banking while they watched, and they swapped me for the cash in local currency. If anyone is interested, drop me a line, thanks!
