As part of the M6toll’s Drive for Charity ‘In the Community’ funding, Midland Expressway Ltd (MEL); operators of the M6toll have provided £1000 to Pathway Project to revitalise their outdoor space in their Tamworth Refuge.
Pathway Project provides services to women and children who suffer domestic abuse supporting them with a range of services including refuge provision, floating support, children’s services, a 24 hour helpline, counselling, group therapy, drop in centre services and training provision. The mission of Pathway Project is to ensure that every adult and child who comes to them seeking support for domestic and sexual abuse is given an opportunity to engage in services that can help them to make the journey from victim to survivor.
Pathway Project want their service users to feel that they can share their experiences and know that they will be listened to, which is why updating their outdoor area is so important as another area for families to sit down, take a break and talk.
Hayley Baxter, CEO said “Pathway Project would like to say a massive thank you to M6toll for their wonderful donation, that will allow us to buy new seating and garden toys for our refuge families to enjoy. With the constant demand on fundraising making new purchases for projects like this often get delayed, but with our families using the space more than ever this couldn’t have come at a better time.
