We're delighted to be bringing our Flight for Youth Creative Pop-Up to the 2019 Norfolk Spring Fling!
Taking place on Thursday 11th April at the Royal Norfolk Showground, the Norfolk Spring Fling is one of the most popular family Easter events in the county’s calendar, with plenty of shows, activities and attractions for the whole family to enjoy. Be sure to visit us at our Creative Pop-Up to see our Flight for Youth butterflies and even get involved by taking advantage of the special show price to paint your own butterfly.
Flight For Youth is our 25th anniversary fundraising campaign, which will transform Holkham Hall and The Assembly House in Norwich into a kaleidoscope of butterflies, with an art installation designed by students from Norwich University of the Arts. The campaign has been generously supported by companies across Norfolk and our thanks to each and every one of them, in particular our headline sponsor, Norwich High School for Girls.
You can help us build this kaleidoscope of butterflies to celebrate 25 years of The Benjamin Foundation and raise £100,000 to bring hope, opportunity, stability and independence to the vulnerable people we support by purchasing a butterfly. Your butterfly will then be included in one of our two unique art installations, which will be available for the public to view throughout the summer, before being returned to you as a keepsake for your part in this exciting campaign.
So do join us at the Norfolk Spring Fling! Our beautiful paintable ceramic butterfly is the perfect opportunity for individuals and groups to get involved in a fun, imaginative and engaging way! You can even submit your decorated butterfly for inclusion in the installation. Find us in the ‘Plant and Grow’ area.

The Benjamin Foundation has given me a sense of confidence and comfort. I feel a sense of normality when I speak to the staff but also in the independence I am given; they are always there for me and my needs. I have learnt to not be so stressed, anxious and depressed about certain situations, I have learnt a lot about money and budgeting. I now feel so much more confident about myself and the fact that I can now move forward in life.
