    Do any charities take big old TVs? 27th Jan 13 at 10:33 AM
    I have a big TV to get rid of, one of those original flat screen ones from about 10 years ago, similar to the one in this link:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Panasonic-Quintrix-36-flat-screen-television-TX36PF10-/271143106063?pt=UK_AudioTVElectronics_Video_Televi sions&hash=item3f2163760f

    It's in perfect working order and was in daily use until last week, so it doesn't seem right to take it to the tip, but I'm not sure what else to do with it.

    No-one seems to want these at home any more as they are so bulky, so I wondered if any charities would use them?

    Thanks!

    I've certainly seen them for sale in their shops.

    Not many charities take any electrical items, they'd need someone to check them out for safety, Try Freecycle, or if you've got a battered wives home (Rescue) women there have often escaped with all their worldly goods in a binbag and need everything they can get when they find themselves a flat.
    Now that i'm what you could describe as an older person i've stopped eating health foods.
    I need all the preservatives i can get.

    BHF do have specialist furniture & electricals shops if there is one nearby.
    Public appearances now involve clothing. Sorry, it's part of my bail conditions.

    most charities will take them if they have a scart socket and remote, we p.a.t test them before sale

    as Sailorsam says, Freecylce might be an option or you could try Freegle, Gumtree, Streetbank or Preloved

    Not much demand for analogue TV's these days...
    No free lunch, and no free laptop
