I have just changed my phone and have taken the sim card from the old phone all the data on the old phone was transfered to new one and that is fine.What I cannot understand is why I am still getting emails on the old phone even though there is no sim card in it can anyone explain please as I want to give the old phone to a charity shop.

Is it not connecting to the email server using your router WiFi. You don't need a phone connection for that.

If you wish to stop it then you need to remove all the settings from the email client on your old phone or better still is to do a complete reset, especially if you are going to dispose of it to a charity shop.
