Butterfly Memory Release 2021
We held our Butterfly Memory Release on a beautiful sunny day this year, and released 600 Painted Lady butterflies into our wildlife friendly sensory gardens, each one dedicated to the memory of someone very special.
Although we were unable to invite our supporters to Willow Wood on this occasion, please find a video below of the occasion.
Two members of our In-Patient Unit let the butterflies fly free, following a moving address by our volunteer chaplain David and a welcome from chief executive Karen.
This year, for the first time, we are selling beautiful hand painted metal butterflies as a symbol of enduring love. These can be placed in our newly designed Memory Garden here at the Hospice or taken home to cherish.
The butterflies are 40cm high with a wingspan of 20cm and are truly lovely.
