Sarah Thorp Director
Having lived in Devon for most of my life, I now live in Denbury with my family and teenage son Zach (who you will find is part of our team too!)
This project has been a dream for what feels like an eternity and I am so proud of what we have achieved so far! Our team are completely inspirational.
Seeing skills and confidence flourish and proving that everyone has so much to offer the world of work and our community, given an enabling environment, is hopefully just the start of our adventure.
Amanda Pugh Director
With a passion for advocacy and inclusion for people with additional needs, I’m really excited to be involved with this fantastic project!
We are already seeing a real sense of support from the local community and the breaking down of some barriers.
Watching our participants accomplish new skills, grow in self esteem and come into work smiling makes every day worthwhile.
I live in Kingsteignton with my husband and teen daughter, Poppy. Life is busy but I love it!
Nicola Cafe Team Mentor
After volunteering with us last year at Newton Abbot Carnival, we couldn’t miss the opportunity of asking Nicola to join the cafe team once we opened!

Hannah 1-1 Job Coach
Unflappable Hannah has years of experience in support work .
A steady influence for the participants she works with, Hannah is no stranger to problem solving or jumping in at a moments notice to help in a tricky situation!
Hannah is great to have on the No Limits Team, and can usually be found surrounded by milkshake sprinkles, helping a nervous particpant at the till or getting stuck into the washing up! Nothing is off limits.
Hannah is kept busy at home with her husband and young family.
Sue Jervis Accounts Administrator
Susanne has a background in accountancy and without her numeracy skills, eye for detail and keeness for accuracy we would be lost!
Coming to our rescue two days a week, she fine tunes everything ‘office side’ and helps keep things running smoothly.
We top her up with coffees to keep her going!
In her spare time Sue enjoys the country life, living on a farm, with her family, husband ( and quite a few cows!)
Lois Work Experience
Lois is really growing in confidence after just a few sessions working with us and is absolutely brilliant in the kitchen.
Tom Work Experience
Tom is always keen to do any task asked of him and his confidence is really shining through.
Zac Cafe Volunteer
Zac has a real ‘can do’ attitude and after completing a Work Experience programme with us (where he gained certification in Level 2 Food Hygiene & Safety, Allergy Awareness and Barista Skills!) we are extremely fortunate that he now volunteers with us one day a week.
Polite, professional and with an intricate knowledge of all there is to know on the Barista side, he uses his inititave and is an excellent team member.
A busy individual, Zac has also volunteered at the Pow Wow cafe in Teignmouth for quite some time so we are really pleased he has also found time for us!
