In my will I have set aside a five-figure sum of pounds for charity — a group of four animal charities and a group of seven children’s charities. This five- figure sum consists of five consecutive non-zero digits, not in numerical order. On my death this legacy is to be divided equally between these charities. But I have left it to my executors’ discretion to choose to divide it instead equally among the charities in just one of the groups. each donation will be a whole number of pounds, whichever course they take.

What is the five-figure sum?
