Michael Fabricant and the Chairman of Lichfield District Council, David Leytham, camped it up for charity on Saturday 19th October when with 100 others walked a mile around Lichfield to raise money for the Pathway Project, a local charity against domestic violence.The walkers were given high heels to undertake the course. “I chickened out” says Michael Fabricant. “I didn’t fancy blisters or a bunion! But I probably over-compensated on the pink!
“The Pathway Project has become a major resource in the District. No-one deserves to have a home where they are being hurt by the other people they live with and that not applies to women, but men and children too. And that hurt doesn’t just apply to physical injury, but to verbal, emotional, social, financial, and sexual hurt too”.
The Project offers a 24 hour helpline: 01543 676800 and further information can be found at www.pathway-project.co.uk
