How about a money order? For a fee moneygram will let you send one  
from their website with a uk debit card. You'll get a secret number  
that you can mail to them in the post and then they can got to thier  
nearest moneygram outlet with it and claim the cash

Unsure if the fees are any cheaper however, and bear in mind what I'm  
suggesting really is no more or less secure than sending actual  
dollars in an envelope.
