Coventry Editorial 22nd Jul, 2022

THE NEW Myton Hospices’ Butterfly Effect – to commemorate the lives of loved ones no longer with us – gets under way today, July 22, writes Oscar Bland.

The unique piece of art will be unveiled at The Wild Flower Meadow at Coombe Abbey Country Park, near Coventry, as a heartfelt message to members of the hospice.

A total of 2,000 locally crafted, teal, metal butterflies will be dotted around the meadow, each representing a lost loved one.

Anyone wanting to make a donation can take home a souvenir from the poignant display.

There will be musical entertainment from 12pm each day during the display which runs until next Sunday, July 31.

Those taking centre stage at 12pm each day are as follows:

Friday. July 22 – Myton Choir and Andy Smith

Saturday, July 23 – Christie Pepper

Sunday, July 24 – Meganne Gill-Swift

Monday, July 25 – Rock Choir

Myton Hospices’ CEO, Ruth Freeman said: ““It is said 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 is the 40th year of Myton Hospices and the charity hopes to be providing its vital services free of charge for the next 40 years and beyond.
