Where to buy white silica sand?

Ok, so I'm new to using sand, I have been using gravel which I recently sold as I prefer the look of sand. I've done my research and concluded that white silica sand is best for me considering budget (I'm 15, so this is important!), appearance and compatibility with my fish (I have silver sharks, clown loaches, red tailed black sharks, guppies and tetras). I've been searching the web and fund a large range of different prices and understandably (considering the weight) postage costs. I need to purchase around at-least 15KG/30lbs. I live in Chorley (North west England) and I can't really travel far, so unless it's literally around the corner, the internet is the only viable option. So please can I have some links to reliable websites for purchasing sand under these requirements? Thanks, please list any websites even if they're not ideal. Thanks for all and any help
