Need to rehome my poorly 2003 147 1.6 16v Lusso

Hi all,
Last year I finally got myself a 147 (yay!!) unfortunately, last month the head gasket went. I've got as far as removing the cylinder head and stripping it, but that's where things have stopped. Due to my daughter needing to go back and forth to the hospital and in need of surgery, my personal life changing and my work commitments, I no longer have the time, money or energy to finish the job.
I've already bought several new items:
Gasket set
Head bolts
Timing belt kit
Water pump

The head hasn't been pressure tested or skimmed yet, as I just haven't had the chance.
Until this happened, she was a fantastic car and didn't miss a beat. I'm going to be really sad to see her go.
She's taxed and tested until the end of June. Metallic black with 5 doors and dark cloth seats.

I'm looking for a quick sale, but I'm not desperate, so reasonable offers only please. I just don't want to have to walk past and see her getting all mucky and more neglected every day and I don't want to scrap what has so far been a beautiful and fun car to own!
