Well like others have stated you could turn it into a media server keeping OSX (iTunes, Movies) or convert to a more powerful version (PLEX or XBMC) which is always a good option.

To your question of donation don't know about in the UK but, I have to believe you guys would have something like we do (US):

Komputers 4 Kids

If that is something you want to do it would be a great option and I would search around for it.  People always want to help out abroad (which is great) but, there is always a need in country as well.

Either way the '07 Mini has life left, I had an '06 for a long time. Swapped it from child to child as a study station (internet, word processing, dictionary, reference) until it died an early death (from my upgrading madness..lol).  Good luck!
