Default UK source for UI or R-core Transformer?

I need a mains transformer with 230V secondary, 20VA minimum.

I really want to use UI-core (or R-core), but I'm having trouble googling up a supplier.

RS components carry Block FL series goes up to 52VA, but only goes up to 18V

Digikey and mouser carry UI core Triad and Hammond but only go up to 12VA

MCI make 230V 24VA and 48VA UI core, but postage from the US is likely to be huge, even assuming they'd be willing to sell me just one or two of 'em

Does anyone know of a UK supplier?

MyAudio in Hong Kong, R026/009 type, $20 and change.

(is an R-core transformer with 6.3V windings for tube amps, but it has similar size/weight as 30VA types from the regular brands)
It doesn't count how one deals with winning, but how to handle a loss (© DjT)
