Vote for Pathway Project to win a donation in the My Favourite Voucher Codes Poll

This month Pathway Project is participating in a charity poll where we stand the chance of winning a donation!

All we need is for as many people as possible to cast their free vote for Pathway Project this February.

What Is the My Favourite Voucher Codes Poll?

Every month, money money-saving website My Favourite Voucher Codes hosts a charity poll where 4 charities are nominated for the chance to win a donation. Throughout the month the public can vote for the charity that they want to win the donation. This donation is 20% of My Favourite Voucher Codes’ profits for the month and goes to the charity that gets the most votes at the end of the month.

It really is that simple – 4 charities could win the donation and the one with the most votes at the end of the month wins!

This is why we need your help to win the poll. If we win this donation, it can help us support more people who are or have been affected by domestic and sexual abuse in Staffordshire and make a real difference to the lives of those affected by abuse.

How Can I Vote for Pathway Project?

Voting is 100% free, there is no need to enter any details and it takes 2 clicks:

1. Visit the My Favourite Voucher Codes website
2. Scroll until you find the poll (right-hand side of the page on desktop, near the bottom of the page on mobile)
3. Vote for Pathway Project!

Voting will be open from 1st February 2024 to 29th February 2024.

What Is My Favourite Voucher Codes?

My Favourite Voucher Codes is a website which provides free online voucher codes and discounts for online shoppers. They house offers for a range of retailers to help people save money on everything from cat food to world cruises, and everything in between.

Every voucher used at My Favourite Voucher Codes helps raise money for charity too. As their donations are a percentage of profits, the more vouchers you use to get great discounts, the more you raise for a good cause!

It truly is a win-win. But if you don’t want to shop at the moment, that’s fine too, you can still vote in the poll without using any vouchers.

So if you have a few minutes to spare and want to help Pathway Project win a donation, please vote for us this February.

Doors Open 7.00pm | Bar available


Join us for a night of top-class entertainment, and a welcoming atmosphere and help us raise money for survivors of domestic abuse.

Andy James Elvis Tribute is an award-winning Elvis impersonator and was a quarter-finalist in the European Elvis Tribute Act Event only a few years ago!

It doesn’t get any better than Andy’s Elvis act, and we are sure you will love his electrifying performance!

This show is exceptional! Andy James goes above and beyond to entertain his guests. There is never a dull house, well worth the money – if you want cheap and tack then this is not for you!, if you want sound, lights, backdrops, exceptional backing music then give Andy a call.” – Leslie E Jones

Knock on the door number 4!

October saw us host our first-ever bingo night, what has taken us so long? Fun was had by all! We raised a ‘top of the shop’ amount of £1314!

We had six rounds: booze round, foodie round, choccy round, pamper round, fun round and a mystery round. We managed to get our hands on some amazing prizes on offer and even had a gift donated by the talented Katherine Kelly one of our honorary patrons.

Thank you to everyone that donated prizes to this event, you helped make our first bingo night one for the books – without your help, this event would have not been possible.

Keep your eyes down for our future bingo events!

Merry Christmas all! As you can imagine Christmas is an extremely busy time for all the staff at Pathway, just call us Santa’s elves – rushing around behind the scenes organising gifts and trips for our women and children.

It may come as a surprise to a lot of you, but Christmas is many of the staff’s favourite times to be at Pathway. We are overwhelmed yearly by the generosity and kindness of strangers, and we work round the clock helping to make positive memories for the people we support.

This year we have been so overwhelmed by the kindness of others, you have no idea what this means to the women and children we support – and although they might not be able to thank you to you in person we can say thank you on their behalf.

  • Christmas fundraiser at Debenham’s.
  • Melbourne Café hosting a staff onesie day – comfort is key when serving coffee after all!

  • Brakes also swapped secret Santa and decided to give back instead.

Christmas can be a time of fear for women in abusive relationships, but for the women in our refuges, we always try to offer a place of warmth and safety, especially over the festive period.
With your help, we provide the women and children with memories they can hopefully look back on positively.

Merry Christmas!

Over the past year or so we have been exploring all sorts of new ways to raise the money we haven’t explored before. Back last year April & Wendy had the great idea of hosting our very own charity pop-up shop, and the rest was history!

Between January and February, we spent long days and nights sorting, labelling and pricing over 600 items ready to sell at our pop-up shop.

All items were kindly donated by the lovely people in the Staffordshire community and also our very own Pathway Project staff – thank you to all of the kind people that donated some fantastic items.

February saw all hands on deck and the launch of our very first pop-up shop at The Field Community space in Lichfield centre, after a few slight hiccups the morning of (including the keys being missing from the night before) we were open and ready for business!

We had all sorts on offer from Lulu Guinness handbags, a gorgeous gold Vivienne Westwood party dress to clothing from high street favourites from Topshop and River Island – we had something for everyone!

We’re proud to say our first-ever popup was a tremendous success raising £964 over the course of two days.

Thank you to everyone that attended, we had such a great time, and hope to host another pop-up in the not-too-distant future.

A Special Award

Pathway Project is proud to announce that Kathy Coe, Chief Executive Officer, has been awarded the Member of the British Empire (MBE) for outstanding service in the community.  This is a, well-deserved, honour that has been granted to Kathy who has spent 30 years providing a much-needed service to victims of domestic abuse.

Kathy, who is also a survivor of domestic abuse, founded Pathway Project when she realised that the type of support she required to rebuild her and her children’s lives was not available.  From a small start of a telephone helpline in her bedroom, the service, which is a registered charity, has grown to a dedicated team providing support, emergency refuge accommodation, counselling and drop-in service amongst other valuable assistance.

This MBE award is a recognition of Kathy’s selfless sacrifice and the high commitment of her team in turning around the lives of victims who become survivors, many of whom go on to be achievers in their future life. On behalf of the staff, trustees, partners and service users I wish to congratulate Kathy on this wonderful award.
