NHS staff create 600 origami butterflies at city museum

“What we go through, together” is a display of more than 600 origami butterflies, each with a personal message, created by NHS staff local artist Aimee Grundell.

The origami is now on display at Leeds city museum until June 2022. Each butterfly has been folded by a member of the local NHS critical care team and includes a personal message. The origami is part of “reset days,” a programme organised by Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. The reset days were organised to help staff prioritise their own wellbeing after the enormous challenges the teams faced during the pandemic.
