Obsolete computer discs, etc.

Second time of sending.  A response, please.

While turning out my attic I unearthed obsolete *discs for a 1980s 
Amstrad computer *which has long been disposed of.  One disc is, as far 
as I know, in mint condition but a further twelve contain programmes. 
Another six discs contain long forgotten person data which I can't 
access.  I am intrigued to know what they contain.  Also in my searches 
I have found a *Microsoft Works manual* complete with system discs, and 
an *Amstrad user's manual*.  Also about a*dozen 5" discs* containing 
stock records of warehouse long demolished. Again, I am curious to see 
what I recorded 30 years ago.

I am reluctant to consign these items to the dustbin if a) the discs can 
be deciphered, and b) they are are of use to someone else.  Your 
organisation has been suggested as a possible home for at least some of 
these items.  Are they of interest?  If not, do you know any 
organisation that might be?
