I'd second that.  I've been asked a couple of times if I could help 
peoples relatives/friends out who are close to me, if it turns out 
they're not so close I can usually find a fellow LUG member closer who 
is willing to help.

I'm sure other members of the Ubuntu-UK list would be the same, happy to 
pop over and help someone out over a cup of tea/beer if they were near by.
