Project Pathway presents Elvis charity night

ELVIS Tribute

Pathway Project are proud to present the sensational Andy James at Lichfield Sports Club April 27th.

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

'Enough' Art Event

Wow, what an event! We raised an amazing £3,000.

The art was been created by some of the survivors, local artists and also some of the staff. Our service users have been taking part in art therapy classes run by talented local artist Sabina and their work tells their stories covering all emotions.

A huge thank you to Amanda at The Courtyard Fine Art Lounge for putting so much time and effort into this event to make it a success.

Thank you to all of the artists both professional and amateur that took the time to create such emotional pieces.

Thank you to everyone that came to the event and made it a triumph.

And lastly thank you to Scott Markham our auctioneer who stood in last minute when Charles Hanson was no longer able to attend.

We are thrilled that this event was the success it was and we hope to hold this event again in the future.
We are so proud of all of the women that took part and expressed themselves so openly and honestly, without the support of you all this would not have been possible.

Pop Up Shop 2022

Over the past year or so we have been exploring all sorts of new ways to raise 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!

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.

We’re proud to say our first ever popup was a tremendous success raising just under £1000 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.

The Big Pathway Picnic


How would you like to host a picnic this summer, and raise money for a local domestic abuse charity at the same time? Sound good? Then why not host a Big Pathway Picnic?

All you need is:

One of our picnic packs
Tasty treats and delicious drinks
A lovely location of your choosing (we’d suggest Beacon Park or Cannock Chase)
Friends, family or work colleagues

Lots of laughs

Hosting a Big Pathway Picnic is the perfect opportunity to catch up over a Pimm’s, and array of tasty treats of your choosing while raising money and awareness for a great cause this summer. You can host your picnic whenever you want, wherever you want, with whoever you want.

Did you know domestic abuse on average affects 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men. Join us in raising awareness this summer!

We’ll be posting delicious recipes and picnic ideas throughout the next month on our socials and our website to inspire you with your Big Pathway Picnic.

We had our very own Pathway picnic a few weeks ago

Donate in cash, by cheque, or via our direct donation site

Whether £1 or £100 every penny counts!

Tamworth Pride 2022

We had the pleasure of promoting domestic abuse awareness again at this year’s Tamworth Pride. This year the event took place at Wigginton Park and had entertainment on throughout the day from Trixie Lee and Trisha B’ham.

This year we were on hand to provide advice and support, hand out sweets, name the bear and spread some happiness on a lovely sunny day!

This is an event we all look forward to being a part of here at Pathway all year long!

Christmas 2020 at Pathway Project

Merry Christmas all!

As you can imagine this Christmas this year was quite different from our usual Christmas celebrations at Pathway Project. This Christmas will go down as our very first, and hopefully last COVID-19 secure festive period.

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 our staff worked even harder to secure gifts for our service users, due to the uncertainty many faced during COVID-19 and the festive season.

This year was our most successful year with our Amazon Wish List and we could not have been happier. After the year that our service users have experienced, we were so happy to be able to provide some light relief this year.

You have no idea what this means to the adults 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.

A big thank you to the following people and businesses:
  • Tamworth Santa’s Little Helpers.
  • Shenstone Parish Council.
  • Bikers Secret Santa.
  • Rediscovered by DM designs donated a beautiful upcycled children’s desk.
  • Tracy didn’t get to go wild in the aisles, but Tesco did donate an amazing trolley full of Christmas goodies.
  • Waitrose donated boxes and boxes of yummy mince pies and biscuits.
  • Lichfield Cathedral School collected presents in the run-up to Christmas.
  • The Mother’s Union Burntwood donated £200 worth of gift cards to the adults we support – amazing!
  • St Stephen’s Primary school found out we were low on chocolate gifts and donated enough to last the year! Amazing effort kids!
  • Central Hub Logistics donated their famous pamper packs again.
  • The Jones family donated some lovely presents again this year!
  • The Friary School donated sanitary items – thank you.
  • The Young ones burton donated carloads of gifts – wow!
  • The Bell Pub Walsall.
  • Cheslyn Hay High School Sixth formers donated presents for the women again – thanks!
  • Valu Construction.
  • Citylife Magazine organised a toiletries drive that included local businesses such as Richard Winterton Auctioneers, The Lichfield Pantry, The Bureau, Salon 28, Jono’s Tourism, Chasewater Runners, 7th Lichfield Scout Group and St Chad’s Primary.
  • Helen Young & the Hoar Cross Community.
  • Primrose Cottage Art donated some wonderful prints for our new Creche.
  • Shenstone Village Hall.
  • Lichfield Ladies Dart’s Team.

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, and a happy new year.

The UK’s coronavirus lockdown forced April’s London Marathon race to be delayed for six months this year. That meant six more months of training, six months of uncertainty about how the race would take place, and six more months of frustration for our runners – it was far from ideal.
Our runners would no longer be able to run their marathon on the iconic route throughout London, past some of the amazing monuments, with a crowd of people cheering them on as they went. Instead, our runners would be running the marathon on a cold and rainy October Sunday morning, with only family and friends to cheer them on at different points during their routes. Along with 45,000 other participants our runners Callum and Gemma ran the marathon (26.2 miles, or 42km) at a time and place of their choosing on Sunday, logging their progress on an app to make their time official and secure a much-revered medal.

If there was one advantage to the marathon being completed in this format, it was that people from around the UK, and across the world, could make their front door the start and finish line of the race this year. 

Gross donations to the Virgin Money Giving platform were down £25m between March and April this year compared with the same period in 2019. We are so proud of our runners for raising over £3000, it hasn’t been an easy year to fundraise and was another challenge for them to face. 

Both of our runners absolutely smashed their virtual marathons, and we are so proud to have such inspiring people raising vital funding for us. 

Callum and Gemma both had different reasons for choosing Pathway Project as the charity they would support for this year’s Marathon. Gemma is Kathy Coe MBE’s daughter-in-law and knows first-hand the work that Pathway Project has done over the years, and Callum is April from our Community & Outreach team’s brother.  

Callum said “When the opportunity to run the marathon on behalf of Pathway Project came up I was thrilled to be able to run for such a fantastic and ground-breaking local charity. I’m so happy that the funds I have raised will be going towards providing their fantastic services in the Lichfield & Tamworth boroughs.’ 

We are so proud of Callum and Gemma for completing the first virtual London Marathon despite all the obstacles that stood in their way in the build-up. They both did an absolutely fantastic job and really put their all into every minute. 

Thank you.

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!
