Butterflies of Remembrance

When?

April 24, 2024

As St Nicholas Hospice Care celebrates 40 years of caring, we want our community to join with us as we commemorate this milestone together. 

To help mark the occasion, we will have canvases on display in our shops and at our Hospice in Bury St Edmunds, where people can place a butterfly to remember their loved ones who have died.

There are seeded paper butterflies at the Hospice’s Hardwick Lane site and in our shops which people can use. People can also make their own if they wish.

People will have until April 24 to place their butterflies. After this date, all canvases will be taken to the Hospice, where they will be displayed together until the Hospice’s special service, Thankful: a service of remembrance and celebration at St Edmundsbury Cathedral on May 12.

Handmade butterflies cannot be returned, and seeded butterflies will be planted in the Hospice’s garden.
