I'm gonna throw another option out there.
Hunt out a used set of alloys that suit your style and fitment. ebay, gumtree, here,piston heads etc. You be amazed at the bargains that can be had. £250 could buy you a reasonable condition set with usable tyes (it did for me, some advan sa3rs with nearly new kuhmo tyres)
Apex -30 springs can be had for £120 and new shock inserts can be had from tcbparts for £35 each (assuming you have rebuildable N/A struts)
Next on the list are the lower ball joints if worn and then bush replacement with polybush (as hard or soft as you like).
so thats
250 (wheels)+120(springs)+140(inserts)+80(ball joints)+140(polybush)=£730

That gives you a bit of a cushion on the wheels and tyres and £60- £80 for an alignment, maybe some new drop links and sundries like pentrant, the odd tool you might not have (coil spring compressors).

This all assumes you are DIYing it or have someone that can.
