As for trading it in, look for your online camera dealers; they usually do trade-ins. Over here in the States, I go online and tell them what I want to trade. They e-mail me with a free shipping label to send it to them. They evaluate it and get back to you with a price. However, if your lens is as bad as you say, they may reject it.
I just converted your pounds to dollars and it works out at $560. That's a right good price to pay for a lens, and it ought to produce good results. You could also contact the Sigma corporation. They have lens repair shops that could fix that lens for you if you wanted to keep it.
You can read my previous post about this lens and let me know your own thoughts about the lens.
Here are two example photos I took last year. As you can see, the left of the photos are out of focus and it doesn't focus overall.
Canon 18-55mm EF-S F/3.5-5.6 II
Canon 75-300mm EF F/4-5.6 III
Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
Sigma 10-20mm F/4-5.6 EX DC HSM
