UK Hosting

My sister in law has roped me in to build a web site for her daughter's creche. Since they won't want to rely on me to maintain it for them I need to set up a simple, single page brochure site hosted in the UK (they have a .uk domain) which is easy to maintain. Did I mention that it will need to be easy to maintain because the people looking after it aren't technical at all? I did, good.

After I've developed the site for them I'm probably going to suggest they use CityDesk for maintenance. They will need somewhere to host the site though. Does anyone have any suggestions? The site will be small and the bandwidth minimal. The creche is a registered charity, so if we can find someone who does free hosting for non-profit organisations all the better.

I have had some sites hosted with in the past and had no problems with them. They do offer a 50% discount for charitys.

I'll just offer a bit of an opinion: CityDesk kicks ass. It's a great piece of software and ideal for something like this. Good choice.
