Are there any recommendations for good quality sound receivers or microphones? I find that the video or audio I record always has a lot of noise. My budget is around £50 preferably not more than £80.

That's a bit too vague to base any solid advice on.
Could you please describe your current recording process? What do you record, and how?
Especially all the hardware: what's used and how is it connected.
That will give us better ideas what to do to improve the quality.

A transducer, I think.

I couldn't really recommend a microphone for under £80 though as BertKoor requested, we need to know the application to make best recommendations. It would definitely help if you can increase your budget.

I'm very sorry for the late reply, I meant like a microphone, but more professional than a microphone kind, can better gather the sound as well as remove the noise.

I do some fun DIY on my own, and there are times when I need to record outdoors, so I wish the sound of my narration could be clearer.

If you're going to be recording outdoors, I think I'd actually suggest a lavalier mic.

We've started using Zoom F1s, which are a tiny little field recorder which comes with a lavalier. But they're outside your budget. If you already have a recorder, then you can buy lavalier's on their own.
