If you don't get any response here, don't forget about freecycle (but you wouldn't be able to ask for a donation to charity I think)

Looks nice  :)

Both units now successfully distributed, one to a new home in BP the other, which was more of a problem, now gone to Wot Nots. I find it astonishing that so many charitable organisations are so fussy as to what they will take. Anyway, thanks for your suggestions.

Yes amazing how fussy these Charity Shops are when it comes to accepting free goods - you would think they would jump at the chance. Same thing happened to us a few years ago when we wanted to dispose of some very good furniture....
Now my policy is, chop it up and dispose of it in the Tip.....easier and far less hassle.
Good that you managed to find a home for your items though ...
