Poignant butterfly release

Have your say

A spectacular sight will be on offer this summer when native painted lady butterflies are released into the sky above Spalding.

Each butterfly liberated on Sunday, July 5 will be in celebration or memory of the life of a loved one.

The event is being held at Springfields shopping centre to celebrate the fourth anniversary of the Butterfly Hospice in Boston who provide palliative care for end of life patients.

The annual event has previously only been held in Boston but has extended to Spalding and Skegness.

There is a suggested donation of £5, which is payable on the day.

To register your interest in the event or to reserve a butterfly email sandra.white@butterfly hospice.com or call 01205 311222 by June 12.
