Crocheted butterflies are shown outside on a leafy bush

Butterflies for Hope Project

3rd March 2023

As part of the Hope Project, Catalyst clients have recently crocheted 170 little butterflies at their wellbeing drop-ins. They plan to distribute these within the local community of Surrey. The special thing about these butterflies is that on the back, there is a QR code. If you find a butterfly, scan the QR code and you will be taken to a page on the Catalyst website where a message of hope can be written for people in our community.

Local Surrey mental health and wellbeing charity, Catalyst have teamed up with Surrey County Council to help spread hope and awareness across the county.
Hope can mean something different for everyone, whether it be going for walks, shopping trips, or crocheting – these are all activities that Catalyst have offered to people in Surrey over the past few months. Their latest adventure as part of The Hope Project will involve members of the public and social media.

Get Involved
If you find a butterfly, scan the QR code and then leave a message on Catalyst’s ‘Hope’ digital noticeboard. You can also help raise awareness on social media by taking a photo of the butterfly, uploading it to Facebook / Instagram and using the hashtag #butterflies4hopesurrey
