‘Mumbo Jumbo’ butterfly made of bras donated to new women’s health unit at Royal Bournemouth Hospital

First published in News

AROUND 45 women put their creative skills to the test for a good cause when they helped to decorate a symbolic 3D butterfly which will be donated to the new women’s health unit at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital.

Each member of the group was asked to bring a bra to the event where they were given different materials and a 3D butterfly to embellish.

Local artist Sharon White, of Mumbo Jumbo Paint, who organised the event at the Captain’s Club in Christchurch, said their work will be combined to make a unique piece of art.

She said: “Sunday’s event surpassed my expectations. The ladies really embraced what the day was all about and the result was 45 unique pieces of art that I will now co-ordinate into a 'Mumbo Jumbo' painting.”

The event raised a total of £550 which will be split between the women’s health unit, and Breast Cancer Care The Bournemouth Hospital Charity aims to raise around £2 million each year to support patient experience beyond what the NHS can provide.
