Classical collection on vinyl offered free

Hello
I have a large (250+) collection of LPs. Mostly classical, in good condition, and very well maintained, from the 70's, 80's & 90's. I cannot play them and it seems a waste to have them gathering dust. Would anyone on here would be interested, or maybe someone can suggest a club that would like them.
Thanks

have you tried donating to charity shops in your area ?
- mentioning cause we bought some classical LPs from one of these in our town.
otherwise, might be interested in hearing more about the content, possibly can take a part of it if still available / can be posted. thanks.

I have tried a couple locally so I'll persevere with that, some don't want vinyl. Thanks for the suggestion

It is certainly an extensive collection, and very generously given...

...I'd be very happy to pay it forward.

If you're happy to have the collection divided up, HH, I'd be more than happy to meet NH and share. 'New Home' would be kinda fitting?

Ah jeepers, don't worry Enda, enjoy them! I just thought, if you had "doubles" that you'd left behind I wouldn't have minded them, but I'm not "stealing" half of your loot! Thanks for the thought, though, and if you ever plan to get rid of them do keep me in mind. Very kind of you to offer, though.

You wouldn't be stealing anything! There are some doubles indeed, and from my point of view, they should go to somebody who might listen to them. Really well cared for and all in really good condition. Most are close to mint.

They meant an awful lot to somebody though, and I'd be happier if Hoof-Hearted gave her blessing.

That's so very thoughtful, thank you endacl. They're all yours now (and with my great pleasure), so if you'd like to share them, well, that's lovely.
What a lovely ending
