Can't open Car Bonnet 300+ repairs!

I cannot open my bonnet (Focus 2010). When entering the key the lock just turns either way but no click. After trying to push a screwdriver through (as advised) against the white plastic fitting I gave up and took to a Ford dealer and they quoted me:

Lock 41
Latch 60
Clip 3
Grill 35
Build Lock 29
Labour 96 (per hour)

+ vat

Can anyone advise could a non-Ford dealer do the work at a cheaper price, could they get the parts?

Are there any other options?

I've been told to access the lock you have to brake the grill hence the new grill.

I'm just trying to save some money so any help would be thankfully received .
