Tip: If you ever decide to throw it onto a hot cooking fire, rub plain bar soap all over the outside. Any soot or carbon that would stick to the metal, and require substantial scrubbing, will instead stick to the soap, and wash right off. This trick works with any pan used on or in a camp fire.

If you want a fire hot enough to get your wok really cooking, get a turkey fryer. Use the base of it under your wok. Just make sure everything is stable.

Ideally shipping within the UK.
The site link Powerplantop gave has rings at a reasonable price. I typed in "wok rings". I couldn't tell if they ship to the UK, you could contact them. Amazon UK might have them as well.
