Oh, what a shame! You've just missed RIBA's Architect in the House scheme, where you get an hour-long consultation with an architect in return for a £35 donation to Shelter. Maybe there'll be another one next year...
Have you tried the search facility on the RIBA website? You can enter an approximate budget, so hopefully anyone they put you in touch with won't pooh pooh your proposals!
