The Butterfly Effect has officially sold out!

A huge thank you to everyone who made The Butterfly Effect possible and those who made it such a success by purchasing a butterfly in memory of someone special, visiting the installation over the last two weeks, sharing stories and helping us to spread the word!

There’s been laughter, tears and everything in between but it’s been an absolute pleasure to hear so many heart-warming stories. To say we have been overwhelmed by the support is an understatement!

The installation has now been taken down and the butterflies will be taking flight very soon to arrive at their news homes from the 27th of August. Or if you chose to collect your butterfly from Warwick Myton Hospice you can do so on Saturday 17th or 31st August between 11am and 2pm.

And be sure to keep your eyes peeled for our upcoming blog to see if we managed to reach our £50,000 target!

Thank you all so much – we are so blessed to truly have the best supporters in the world and be part of such a wonderful community.

Our CEO, Ruth Freeman has a short message to all of our amazing supporters locally and overseas who have been kind enough to support The Butterfly Effect

The Installation

The Myton Hospices - The Butterfly Effect Installation 2019 - Coventry Leamington Spa Warwick Rugby


1,000 steel butterflies were crafted by GWE Ltd in Warwick to create the striking installation at Coventry Cathedral, which was carefully put together by Arup.


While they may be small creatures, we believe our flutter of butterflies will have big and far-reaching effects on people with terminal and life limiting illnesses, and their families, in Coventry and Warwickshire – with your help of course.


And for years to come, those butterflies will hold a special place in the hearts and homes of the people who purchase them, as well as the people who took the opportunity to see them taking flight at the cathedral.


The butterflies took flight from Friday 19th July to Friday 2nd August 2019.


Through your help we will be able to support more families like...

We are hoping to raise £50,000 from The Butterfly Effect. This could fund the running cost of our Inpatient Unit at Coventry Myton Hospice for ten days!
