Hi does anyone know what type of contract this would be under?
X made an offer to sell something to y for £1000 on Monday. y replied “I will buy it if I can manage to raise the funds”. x promised that she would not sell to anyone else before the following Monday, and added that y could collect the ring any time before noon on the Monday
I'm stuck, at first I thought unilateral but I'm wrong
Type of Contract? Watch

It's collateral; fulfilling an obligation as per the contract will lead to the execution of performance of another contract. Check out the case of Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball, for example, where the contract of buying a product and using it as described and STILL catching influenza collaterally created another contract!
