We love butterflies!
This summer, we’re celebrating the butterfly. Have you spotted any fluttering around the Cotswold countryside near you? With their delicate beauty and heart-shaped wings, they’re a joy to watch.
That’s why these stunning winged insects are at the heart of our special Butterfly Appeal. Why not join our appeal now in memory of someone special to you?
Send us your butterfly pics
If you watch in wonder as a butterfly crosses your path, you’ll love our new photography competition. There’s so much about the butterfly and nature that’s fantastic to celebrate and that’s why we are launching our Butterfly themed Photography Competition.
We are holding a photography competition to find pictures that perfectly encapsulate the beauty of the butterfly. Send us your best pics to be in with a chance of winning a great prize.
Winners will be chosen from three age categories: ten years and under, 11 to 17 years, and 18 years and over.
The top three photos from each age category will have their photograph on display at Stroud’s Museum in the Park, as part of our Butterfly Appeal. In addition, three lucky winners will each win a £40 gift voucher. Age 18 and over a voucher to spend in Sainsbury’s and a £40 Vue cinema voucher for the children’s age categories.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a seasoned snapper or simply enjoy taking a shot or two on your phone, all entries are welcome! Photos can be taken anywhere and of anything that you feel represents the butterfly in all its glory. Be it a real butterfly, a piece of butterfly artwork, or something you feels encapsulates the beauty of the butterfly. We’d love to see them!
