Did give them away

Thank you for the suggestion '50 and counting' I've just dropped a box of DVD's of at a local care home and they were delighted, especially with the Norman Wisdom ones as they specialise in dementia care.
They would also be grateful for any yarn, patterns and knitting needles, so I'll drop those of one day next week.

Thanks Lyssa, I did try the local hospital but they don't accept anything at all and the local hospice referred me to their charity shop, but said shop doesn't want DVD's.

Still they have gone to a good home and I hope they provide the residents with a few hours of entertainment.
