WESTON Park has been all of a flutter - as a flight of brightly coloured butterflies made its debut at the museum.

The personalised butterfly prints celebrate the first 100 individuals and organisations to pledge their support as part of Sheffield Museum’s Buy A Butterfly campaign.

The campaign invites people to show their appreciation by purchasing a personalised butterfly to go on show on the walls of Weston Park for the next year.

Starting from £25, the butterflies are being bought by everyone from families to local businesses, each keen to show their support and contribute to the charitable work Museums Sheffield does across the city’s museums and galleries.

The next additions to the Buy a Butterfly display are set to go up at Weston Park in December.
