The belt snapped on my Citroen C4 - should I buy the parts myself to be fitted by someone?

I can't afford the £1400 quoted for fixing my 2007 Citroen C4 after the cam belt snapped. Garage said they would have to send head off to check damage first. Is it worth me buying a new head myself and then paying someone to fit it? I'm just looking for the cheapest option. I've only had car three months. I don't know what to do.
No. Never buy bits to be fitted by someone else because then you break the chain of liability if it all goes wrong.
