[Freegis-list] UK postcode mapping

A complete newbie question here, so please forgive the gaffs in advance :-)

I'm doing some work for a charity here in the UK who want to plot their donors / meeting locations to see where there are any holes in coverage.

The obvious way to do this in the UK is by postcode.

Can you point me in the direction of suitable systems that would do what they want? Their budget is not large, so MapView or the like is probably out of reach ;-)

Someone has suggested that something as simple as MS Autoroute will provide what they want, but I'd like peoples opinion on that. Clearly they don't need anything enormously sophisticated, but something that will give them what they need at the lowest cost possible.

I guess one of the issues will be the cost of the map data correlating postcode with position on the ground.....

My apologies if this is totally off-beam for this mailing list. If it is, some pointers to the right places to find some answers would be appreciated.
