Looking for an old axle or wheel

Not sure if anyone will be able to help, but my Dad has broken the axle on the rear wheel of his trusty old Dawes Galaxy. So, he's trying to find either an axle that is 8.7mm diameter and about 170mm long, or a replacement wheel, which needs to be a 700 but for a six speed cassette.

Anybody happen to have something like that lying around in their shed and can help keep an old(er) man on the road?

Thanks, Tamsin

Hi, thanks for the replies. Sounds like you got him sorted with an axle Graham, so thanks very much for that. Now I just need to persuade him to clean the bike occasionally! (Although not sure I've got much of a leg to stand on there!)
Thanks, Tamsin
