2019 marks the 25th anniversary since The Benjamin Foundation was established and the Norfolk and Suffolk based charity has announced exciting plans for a high-profile, visually appealing, engaging and, most importantly, family friendly celebration to mark this milestone.

They plan to create a dramatic art installation called Flight for Youth which will feature up to 25,000 glazed pottery butterflies glazed in one of the charity’s four distinct colours – pink, purple, orange or red. The public are being invited to purchase a butterfly but before taking receipt of their commemorative piece the butterflies are being used to create two dramatic and high-profile art installations, at The Assembly House and Holkham Hall. Butterflies are available to purchase on-line now - https://benjaminfoundation.co.uk/flight-for-youth/

Schools, care homes and other groups and organisations can also purchase unglazed butterflies, which they can decorate themselves and submit to be included in the installation.

Flight for Youth also aims to raise funds to continue the work of The Benjamin Foundation, so the charity is appealing to companies in the region to get behind the campaign through sponsorship. They are delighted that many companies have already pledged sponsorship, including Norwich High School for Girls, who are headline sponsors.

The Benjamin Foundation was founded in 1994 by Richard Draper and his wife Vanessa, following the death of their son Ben and for 25 years the charity has been helping people across Norfolk and Suffolk.

Tony Ing, Chief Executive of The Benjamin Foundation says:
“Twenty-five years is an important milestone for any organisation.  It marks an opportunity for us to celebrate and reflect on where we have come from, what we have achieved and what our priorities are for the next quarter century.”
