Donating cross stitch threads to charity?

I've had a hunt online and all the charity groups I found want completed pictures for blankets etc. I have a ton of old threads that really I am never going to get around to using. They are a mix of brands, some from kits and some dmc and anchor. Very few have numbers with them, many have been cut into usable lengths and wound onto bobbins but the numbers don't match up there either! They are all in good condition and I have no doubt that someone with more time than me would make good use of them! Can anyone point me in the right direction please! I am happy to post them within the UK. TIA.

I bet the local primary would have them. We always had loads of binca (?) but never enough nice colours of threads to make sewing enjoyable for the dc. Who wants to cross stitch etc in many shades of brown and grey? smile

Ooh! I'll take them!!!
We've just started a craft club and are on the scrounge for whatever we can get!! We have, courtesy of Woolfy on the share the love thread, got a few kits and patterns and I'll gladly take anything anyone has spare!!!
