Grow Your Tenner and double your donation!

Give £10 so a young person has someone to turn to…and make DOUBLE the difference
“I was stuck in a long term relationships that had severe domestic violence…you were there to support me and acted as a friend standing by my side.”
This year No Limits is taking part in Grow Your Tenner, an annual match funding campaign run by Localgiving.
During this campaign Localgiving will match all online donations up to £10, and monthly donations up to £10 per month for 3 months. This means that your donation will make DOUBLE the difference – so if you donate £10, we could help two young people who, like Amy*, need someone to turn to.
Amy didn’t know what to do when she began experiencing domestic violence. She was afraid and didn’t know what to do. She became very underweight and felt unstable. Eventually the violence got so bad that her life was put in danger.
At No Limits, we gave Amy someone to turn to. When she came to our drop-in centre, she was welcomed in and met with a friendly face. We gave her information and advice about her circumstances, and a listening ear when she had no-where else to go:
“You let me speak about my feelings, fears and even let me cry many times.”
Amy was able to get out of the relationship and build a brighter future.
“Today I have proudly put weight on and I have grown into a new woman. It still affects me, every now and then becoming overwhelming but since getting out of this relationship… I have for the first time in my life been able to say that I am proud to be here and I have so many goals that I am looking forward to achieve!”
With your support, we can help more young people like Amy.
£10 can pay for someone like Amy to have somewhere to turn – a friendly face, a cup of tea and the information, advice and support that they need. And if you donate today, your £10 will be turned into £20 thanks to Localgiving! Grow Your Tenner 2015 will run from Tuesday October 13th until Wednesday the 18th November, or until the money runs out.
