The Myton Hospices Butterfly Effect takes flight from Friday 22nd July

Please note this article is from 2022. To see the 2024 Butterfly Effect please click here.


This summer, The Myton Hospices will be celebrating the lives of loved ones who are no longer with us, in a unique and special way with a brand-new heartfelt art installation located in The Wild Flower Meadow at Coombe Abbey Country Park in Coventry.


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


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

The Myton Hospices, CEO Ruth Freeman said:

It is said that the smallest movement of a butterfly’s wings has the power to change the weather on the other side of the world. At Myton we are certain that, by the same token, small acts of support have the power to make a big difference. We passionately believe that everyone matters for every single moment of their life and, by supporting each other, we can come together to create something amazing – this belief is at the heart of everything we do. It’s our very own butterfly effect.

This year we are celebrating 40 years of The Myton Hospices and with your support can continue providing vital services free of charge for the next 40 years and beyond. By joining The Butterfly Effect you can help to ensure Myton is here for more people, now and in the future.
