Does anybody know of a charity, school, youth group etc that would need a large number of brand new, unboxed USB keyboards?

We have loads just sitting in a store room that are surplus to requirements.

The company doesn't want to get involved in donating them as they are worried about liability (apparently there have been cases where donated kit has eventually died and it was expected that the comapny would repair or replace it).
Obviously, as these are all BNIB there shouldn't be any issues - but that is a 'risk' that the receving organisation would have to accept.

Cheers in advance.

PS Forgot to say that the keyboards are in London.

There are various charities which recycle old computer equipment so could be worth looking at them since they are most likely to be able to handle lots of keyboards.

This site gives some suggestions.

Yah think?

The team eventually aborted this challenge after arriving in New Orleans and witnessing the remaining damage caused by Hurricane Katrina the previous year. The presenters decided to give away the cars for free to a Christian mission. However, while Clarkson's and Hammond's were given away, James May was declared the loser as he was unable to find any claimants for his car. Immediately after filming for that segment was completed, a lawyer threatened to sue Clarkson for misrepresentation after she heard the car wasn't a 1991 Camaro (it was a 1989 model) but would drop the suit on payment of US$20,000.
