Dedicate a butterfly for St Helena Hospice

St Helena Hospice is inviting people to dedicate a personalised butterfly plaque in memory of a loved one, all while raising funds to support local people in need of hospice care.

‘Beautiful Butterfly’ plaques are available to buy in wood, brass or stainless steel for personalisation with a tribute message. All butterfly orders must be placed by Monday 15th July.

Butterflies will be ready for collection at St Helena Hospice’s Community Fun Day event on Saturday 3rd August at Mile End Recreation Ground between 11am to 5pm. 

Alternatively, the engraved plaque can be collected from the charity’s fundraising office by appointment.

Rosalyn Leclercq, senior philanthropy manager at St Helena Hospice, said: “Each butterfly symbolises the enduring memory of those we cherish and serves as a reminder of the love and joy they brought into our lives.

“With your purchase, you will help ensure St Helena Hospice can continue to provide compassionate care and support to local people facing incurable illness and bereavement in north east Essex.

“Your loved one doesn’t have to have been supported by the hospice; anyone can purchase a dedication in tribute.

“Together, let us honour the memory of our loved ones while making a difference to the lives of others. Your support will help bring comfort and care to those using the services of St Helena Hospice today and in the future.”

Prices range from £8 to £59 for purchase and dedication online with all proceeds going to St Helena Hospice.
