8 Speed wheels / compatibility

So my gf was knocked off her bike by some lemon who failed to stop after he cut her up.

As a result, her front and back wheels are both very badly buckled and I think she’ll need a new pair.

It’s only a b-twin special (500), but I think it’s 8 speed - which is uncommon these days!

Could anyone advise on the compatibility of 8 speed cassettes on 11 speed wheels? Can it be done with appropriate spacers?

Or can anyone propose some cheap (robust comes before performance) wheels? £50-100 I guess for the pair.
