    I asked at school if anyone wanted to take old text books to a charity that can use them abroad. No-one wants our french and german books. We only teach spanish. Does anyone have any ideas,other than the skip? They are over 10years old

    Would any local schools want them?

    Which books are they? I teach French and German in Sri Lanka. We are always interested in building up books for reference! Hope I haven't seen this too late. I will be back in the UK in July and August so could collect them if you are anywhere near the Scottish borders?

    They are about to be tipped!!! There are boxes and boxes of them!! I've tried so hard but the head and the caretakers are fed up with them being stored in various places around the school. I could save one of each? They are quite old, published 2005. One box is french dictionaries. We are in Coventry.

    One of each would be great - the only issue is postage, I don't have a UK bank account anymore (tried to reopen my dormant one, and was told I needed 3 proofs of address which I don't have anymore!) and my Sri Lankan one doesn't allow me to make transfers :( I'm trying to think of a way around this so I could pay you for postage? Do you have any suggestions?
