This is more geared to Andsome than leo49 but everyone should pay attention to this. Having worked next door to a PDSA shop for two years I can confirm that charity shops cannot sell electrics of any description. H&S forbids them from selling such items unless they have been tested to certain standards. This renders it ineffective for them to sell any thing electric. I know that most of you have good intentions at heart but my neighbour had to dump any thing electrical. Unless you are an electrician and willing to donate whatever time it takes to check everything electrical your local charity shop sells then don't bother donating electricals. I am not saying don't donate, period but please understand they have to follow proceedures as well. Just give away old consumables. I recently offered several items of hardware on donate a pc but to no avail. I managed to offload a few bits to friends.
I honestly don't think that my reply warranted such a rude response. I was not intending to offer unwanted advice. I merely thought that if no one took up your generous offer, then the goods in question may still find a good home, and also put a pound or two into the coffers of a worthwhile charity. If, as others have pointed out, they would not be permitted to sell such goods, then so be it, I stand corrected, but my suggestion was made with good intent, and did not warrant your terse reply.
