Finding a 'home' for an old computer!

I have a 'Tiny' computer system, comprising a 17" monitor, tower, Lexmark printer and scanner.
It is about 6 years old, but still works well and has an O/S Windows 98.
I now have a lap top and wish to dispose of the old machine, but am loathe to take it to the local dump as I am sure it would be useful to, perhaps, someone new to computers.
I am happy to give it away, or accept a payment which I would send to a charity.
Have you any ideas of any organisation which might be interested in taking this equipment off my hands?

hi any charity shops will collect it for you, and sell it for good causes, ones taking my snooker table away, 1 less job for me and a good deed for the day!

Make sure there's no sensitive, personal data left on the hard drive before parting with the computer. TC.

Due to laws on electrical goods, you may find that no charity shop will want the items. Try a postcard in your local supermarket or place nearby that have a notice board. Word of mouth with the neighbours or workplace perhaps!.

A few months ago there was a thread on this forum asking for `computer` help for a school for autistic kids. A good few answered but having visited the school I felt that they could use a tremendous lot of help. The address is:
Holbrook Centre for autism,
Portway,
Holbrook,
Derbyshire.
DE56 0TE.

Sorry I`ve not got the telephone number, but if you can find it get in touh and see if your old gear is of any use. I`m sure it will.
