The work of a Burntwood domestic violence charity has been praised by the Home Secretary.

Theresa May described the Pathway Project’s work as “excellent”.

Her comments came after Lichfield MP Michael Fabricant invited a Home Office Minister to visit the charity.

“May I say what excellent work people in the Pathway Project and similar schemes are doing on this important issue,” Mrs May said.

Lichfield’s MP made the invite after informing the Home Secretary that he had donned a pink feather boa to take part in a recent walk to raise awareness of the charity – an image which sparked a light-hearted response from the Speaker of the House of Commons.

“The hon Gentleman must have looked even more exotic than usual!” he said.

Mr Fabricant says he now intends to help organise a Ministerial visit to the Pathway Project.
