and be part of The Butterfly Effect installation. 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.
Myton supporter, Jo Stone, is supporting the campaign in memory of her Dad, who died at Warwick Myton Hospice in February this year. Jo said: “This summer I’m supporting The Myton Hospice’s Butterfly Effect to thank Myton for the amazing care they gave to my Dad and our whole family, including his beloved dogs. I hope you’ll join me and my family and get involved too.
Like us, you might also know that something as small as being able to spend quality time together as a family enjoying precious moments and making memories, can make such a big difference. I don’t know how any of us would have coped without Myton. I know that you will have your own story but what if you could be part of making a difference to someone else’s?”
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 they are certain that, by the same token, small acts of support have the power to make a big difference. They 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 they do. It’s their very own butterfly effect.
This year they 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 like you, now and in the future.

At The Myton Hospices we believe that everyone matters for every single moment of their life; we focus on enhancing life when cure is no longer an option.
We have three hospices in Coventry, Rugby and Warwick, and have the only Inpatient beds in Coventry and Warwickshire. We care for people living with a wide range of terminal illnesses including Respiratory conditions, Heart conditions, Cancer, Organ failure and Neurological conditions. We also provide support for their loved ones.
We are a charity and we have to raise £9.1 million of the £11.6 million we need this year to continue providing our services free of charge. Just 20% of our funding comes from the NHS. We rely on donations and support from our local communities.
Last year, despite the ongoing challenges of Covid-19 which limited our ability to offer some of our services, we supported over 1,500 people and their families, in our hospices, via our patient & family support services, and in the community through Myton at Home.
