    Hi! I had left my email before. I have gotten responses for this, but, I did not realize that the responses would all be from the UK. I am in the United States, so if you are from the UK, I cannot receive any tapes from you, the shipping would be too expensive. Thank you.

      Hi whereabouts is the Oxfam shop that takes your videos etc? Our local Oxfam shops do not take them nor do Cancer Research in Shirley/ Solihull area.

      I have a numerous collection of children’s, teenager and adult videos.
      Seems such a shame to throw them away, surely someone would like them?

      Kind Regards
