How to remove Gmail account from tablet?

Hello all, I was given a brand new Sumvision tablet which I wanted to donate to a charity I work for, however before doing so I thought I'd have a little play on it and one of the things I did was to sign in to my gmail account. I now find it automatically displays my inbox and I can find no way to remove my account. Thanks.

Well I did it but not exactly sure how. I thought I'd try my 'long-winded' method first just to see if it worked, and I could always use the factory reset method if anything went wrong. So on my PC I changed the password of the Gmail account, then switched on the tablet and opened Gmail on it whereupon it automatically displayed my account but requested the (new) password.

At this point I'd just like to say that when I'd googled for a solution over recent days a lot of people said go to 'Account & sync', click on the account, click on menu and then click on 'Remove account'. But remove account never showed on any list on my tablet. However I thought I'd look again whilst logged out of my account so I went to 'Accounts & sync' then selected my account then tapped the menu and this time 'Remove account' was there. So maybe you need to be logged out to be able to do this. Only thing is I could find no way of logging out before.

Thanks folks.
