Firstly, a very nice and honest report.

Regarding the Charity stall stuff left over, it is very regreatble that any has to be thrown away, but it happens, we evn offered the stuff free later on the Sunday Afternoon so as much as possible went to a new home, little was taken. Things like Scanners, RiscPC's, etc., went mainly on the Saturday.

A small amount was taken away by helpers, to be stored or used in the charity auction later in the year.

A large amount of money was raised for the Wakefield Hospice breaking the record again.

As to storing the rest this is a problem it cost money!

In any case from August the new EU regulations come into force and we could not afford the costs involved with that.

I am sure Castle would not want all the old computers, since it will push up prices longer term. - Maybe Drobe can do an article on this, WEEE regulations.
