Grant-obtaining wizards: I need your help!

I'd like to run a hack day for Numbas, the maths e-assessment software we make at Newcastle. Since Numbas users are spread all over the world, and Newcastle is hours from anywhere, we'll probably need to pay people's travel expenses to get here.

I'm sure there must be a funding body somewhere that would give us some money to help out with covering costs for the day, but I'm not sure who. One or more of the LMS grant schemes could probably be persuaded to cover it, but I'm not sure which. I'll talk to our LMS rep, but it'd be good if I could hear from someone else who's run a computery event with LMS funding.

Apart from the LMS, where else should I look? Jisc seems to have transcended temporal concerns, and I don't think the IMA is appropriate. I'd expect the HEA to have a million requirements in return for a tiny grant.
