Scrap or repair - 51 Clio 1.4 16v

First time post here... would really appreciate your advice

My Clio (1.4, 16v) has a knackered engine. The camshaft started to fall apart, with a bit of metal coming off and bending the valves... possibly a bit worse too (haven't taken the head off to have a closer look).

Garage reckons the damage is 500-1000 depending on the cylinder heads etc. The car's got 105k on the clock, so it's probably not worth more than 1500 or so.

The garage has offered 300 for it. What do you reckon? Fix it, sell it to the garage, flog it on eBay ? I'm at a loss here so would appreciate any advice.

Cheers in advance
