Butterfly Release

Families gathered in the Jubilee Meadow to release butterflies in memory of their loved ones on Saturday. The event was hosted by The Butterfly Hospice Trust which provides end-of-life care to patients in South Lincolnshire and sponsored by the Len Pick Trust.

About 60 people gathered at the Wellhead in Bourne on Saturday for a short service of remembrance. They then released painted lady and tortoiseshell butterflies into the park.

Donations from the event will go towards the hospice in Boston. Fundraising manager Paul Caddell said: "This was our first butterfly release in Bourne, when many hearts were touched and tears shed as we remembered our loved ones".

"The Butterfly Hospice Trust is very grateful to the Len Pick Trust for its generosity in sponsoring this event, and for the support from the mayor and the Bourne United Charities for allowing us to use the Jubilee Meadow. "We were blessed with good weather and had a very successful day, which we hope will become an annual event in Bourne."

The charity's six-bed hospice in Boston was built in 2014 and It provides respite care, symptom control and end-of-life care to patients from south Lincolnshire. A spokesman for the Trust said We were pleased to sponsor this event and it was very touching and humbling to see the warmth that the event engendered"
