The Butterfly Effect FAQs

Back to The Butterfly effect

What is The Butterfly Effect?

We passionately believe that everyone matters for every single moment of their life and, by supporting each other, we can create something amazing – this belief is at the heart of everything we do. It’s our very own butterfly effect.

Taking place between Friday 22nd and Sunday 31st July the installation will see 2,000 locally crafted, teal, metal butterflies leading you on a tour through the beautiful flowers, wildlife and scenery.

Each butterfly will represent a loved one who is sadly no longer with us and we invite you to make a dedication of your own and donate to The Myton Hospices in return for your very own butterfly, so that you can take home a small part of this poignant display.


What is the deadline for taking part in The Butterfly Effect?

The Butterflies are limited edition so we’d encourage you to place your order as soon as possible. As long as we haven’t sold out we are able to take orders up until Sunday 31st July 2022.


What are the butterflies made from?

The butterflies have been locally crafted by GWE Ltd in Warwick, they are made of steel.


What is the suggested donation?

Based on the cost to Myton of producing the Butterflies we suggest a minimum donation amount of £30 but you can donate as much as you like.


Will my butterfly be personalised?

Please note, that the Butterflies on display will not be personalised but will instead represent someone special. They have been hand crafted locally and are made of steel and powder coated teal to ensure they are a long-lasting tribute. It’s important to note however, that after some time outdoors they may start to tarnish.


When is the installation taking place and can I visit?

Butterflies will be in place from Friday 22nd July until Sunday 31st July at 12pm located at the brand-new heartfelt art installation located in The Wild Flower Meadow at Coombe Abbey Country Park.

Staff and volunteers from Myton will be there between 10am and 3pm daily, should you have any questions or wish to speak to someone.

The display will be in place until 12pm on Sunday 31st July, after this point butterflies will be available to collect and take home with you or if you’d prefer to have your butterfly posted please select this option when making your donation.


When would I receive my butterfly?

Your butterflies will take flight and be posted throughout August.
