I have 2 boxes of books in very good condition(some almost brand new) which I want to give away.

Any recommendations for a school, charity or other entity?

I will take them to whoever.

What sort of books are they? I know that in the Knowledge & Information Centre on the ground floor of St Thomas' they have a shelf where books are sold for 1 pound each. I'm told they have a trolley taking books round the wards. You could try calling them and asking them if they'd be interested.

56a Infoshop behind Walworth Rd, close to Strata, is a local community space that runs a free book exchange. Basically people bring a book they have finished and select one they want to take. It's a book swap point really. They take donations of books to keep the exchange supplied...

Supposedly there is now a good permanent Book Exchange at Absolutely Starving on 51 Tooley Street.

Only second-hand knowledge, I'm afraid, so I cannot guarantee it's correct, sorry, but if you want to give it a try

I usually take books that are in good condition to the Oxfam Bookshop on Stutton Ground in Victoria (just off Victoria St). They welcome donations and it's actually a really nice book store.
