Butterfly campaign’s final stage takes flight

A butterfly fundraising campaign has given wings to projects at Weston Park Museum. Since launching in 2012, the appeal has so far raised over £27,500 to support the city’s museums and galleries through the sale of personalised butterflies.

Visitors can buy the butterflies, which are based on real specimens in the museum’s Natural History collection, to be placed on the museum’s walls for a year. The deadline for the final display of butterflies is September 7.
