Companies too went above and beyond. When it was time for businesses to re-open, Marson Brothers worked 18 hour days to ensure businesses had all the signage they needed and gave away 500 free posters emblazoned with the sign, ‘We are open for business’.

To date the foundation has raised over £50,000 on their ‘Games for Charity’ Facebook page, helping numerous local causes.
One person who has benefitted from this money is Liam Critchett, a Scarborough man who is undergoing an expensive course of treatment to learn to walk again after a spinal tumour was removed.
Liam said: “No Limits have helped raise almost £4,000 towards my treatment which costs £13,500 each year ." Most of which Liam raises on his fundraising page: www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/liam-critchettHe said: "My therapy is going really well and I’m still progressing a lot. That’s thanks to Hannah and Michelle at No Limits.”
If you’d like to see No Limits Foundation recognised for their great work, find the nomination form on our website.
Or what about the incredible people who run our food banks? Trish Kinsella at the Rainbow Centre, Kimmie Avison at Gallows Close and Sam Taylor at Westway Open Arms.
