Hi, I purchased a second hand iMac a while ago now want to hand it over to someone else, so need to erase my data. I was hoping to reformat but cmd - R won't work. Seems there is no recovery installed. I don't have any discs so is there a way around this please? Thanks. Its running El capitan 10.11.6 at the moment.

You could always download El capitan from itunes and try creating a bootable usb CLICK HERE for instructions.
