having a spare monitor (or one to use if they're short) is surely more 
useful than CDs which people can burn and donate themselves?

Perhaps we could all burn a wide range of distros and tools (knoppix, 
debian, slack, fedora, open CD, open office, maybe even some bsden), put 
them all together at the next slug meet and put them in a box to give to the 
centre?  Anyone else know of any similar sites which would benefit from such 
a service?  I'm sure a lot if not most of us have a) an optical writer, b) 
decent bandwidth, c) access to reasonably cheap media ...
