In return for a donation of £35, you will receive a beautiful, unique, handmade butterfly made in iron-works and finished with a blue lacquer.
Each butterfly costs £35 and is a special way to celebrate the life of someone you have loved and lost.
Every Forever Butterfly bought in someone’s memory will make a real difference to seriously ill children in Dorset and Wiltshire - providing a lifeline of support for the whole family.
You can purchase a Forever Butterfly through our website, by calling our Head Office on 01202 644220 or by email at email@example.com.
Our Retail shops will also have leaflets including a postal form which you can complete and send back to us using Freepost Julia’s House.
Your handcrafted ornamental butterfly has been lovingly crafted by Unbearable Design Ltd to help raise funds for Julia's House Children’s Hospice. Each butterfly and stem stand at 43cm tall with a wingspan of 18cm and length of 15cm, is made of stainless steel and powder–coated in blue.
You may wish to display your special butterfly in your home or garden. We hope your butterfly will bring you comfort as you celebrate and remember the life of your loved one. The butterflies will not be personalised or engraved. As each butterfly is handmade, each butterfly may differ with shape, size and colour.
Please note, in order to prevent colour fade, we recommend that you keep your butterfly indoors or in a shady spot outdoors and treat with yacht varnish.
Yes! You can order as many butterflies as you wish in celebration of those you love. All donations received for the butterflies will help our teams to continue caring for the children and their families living with a life-limiting illness. You can order up to three butterflies on our website or via our leaflet form. If you wish to order more than three butterflies, please speak to our head office on 01202 644220 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Purchasing more than three butterflies will require additional postal costs to be paid if you wish for them to be posted out to you.
You will have the option to collect your butterfly from either our Creekmoor or Salisbury Julia’s House shops from 29th May to 11th June 2023, 7 days a week from 10am-4pm. To collect your butterfly you will need to bring proof of purchase via email confirmation or letter.
You can have your butterflies posted to you at a cost of £4.50 for up to three butterflies. Purchasing more than three butterflies will require additional postal costs to be paid if you wish for them to be posted out to you.

A Julia’s House Forever Butterfly is a beautiful way for someone loved and lost to leave a lasting tribute of care in the community.
Every Forever Butterfly bought in someone’s memory will make a real difference to seriously ill children in Dorset and Wiltshire - providing a lifeline of support for the whole family. Our care is only possible with the wonderful support of the community who we rely on for 92% of our funds.
£35 could fund one hour of 1-2-1 time with a sibling worker for a brother or sister to relax and have fun and talk with someone who understands how they’re feeling.
£70 could help fund a memory box containing precious keepsakes such as a hand or foot cast that can bring comfort to a grieving family.
£105 could help fund two tailored counselling sessions for a bereaved family helping a child, sibling or parent through difficult times.
We won’t be able to claim Gift Aid against your Forever Butterfly purchase however, any additional donations made we will be able to claim Gift Aid.
Setting up a regular donation in memory of a loved one is a special way to remember them - thank you for your vital support. If you would like to set up a regular donation in memory of your loved one, please contact our Head Office on 01202 644220 or email email@example.com
