Ways to support us

There are plenty of ways you can support the charitable work of The Papillon Project. 


Make a one-off or regular donation to the Project. We welcome donations from individuals and organisations to help fund our work. All the money we receive goes towards setting up allotments in Norfolk secondary schools and colleges and inspiring young people to live healthier, more sustainable lives.

We have an online donations page with the Charities Aid Foundation.

Become a 'Buddy'

For a one-off donation (recommended £10) you can become a ‘Buddy’ (a friend/supporter) of The Papillon Project. As a Buddy, you will receive:

  • A quarterly email newsletter 'The Buddleia'  which shares Project news, updates and opportunities to get involved
  • A swallowtail butterfly pin badge, our Project's symbol, to wear with pride! These are handcrafted in the UK.
  • Invitations to important Papillon Project events, meetings and fundraisers throughout the year

The Buddleia  


You can donate and register to become a 'Buddy' of The Papillon Project by clicking here.

Donations are made and collected through our online donation page with the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF). You will be asked to provide your contact details when you make a donation to become a Buddy. We will store these details securely and only ever email you to send your digital copy of The Buddleia. We will only ever use your postal address to send you over butterfly badge in the post.

Donate materials for upcycling

(creative reuse)


We are extremely keen not to buy new materials for creating school allotments and advocate 'upcycling' (or creative reuse) of items and materials that are no longer wanted. We believe is much better for the environment to upcycle things and sets a good example to young people too. From bath tubs, scaffolding planks to fly-tipped car tyres, we would be interested to hear from you if you think have something we can safely upcycle at a school. Please get in touch with our 'Upcycling Lead' to learn more.

Support us at a public event

We run crucial fundraising & celebratory events every year to help us raise funds and to celebrate our charitable work and amazing efforts of individuals, especially young people. Please click here to find out about the latest fundraising/celebratory events that are taking place. Thank you very much if you choose to attend!


Buy from our 'Pap Up Shop'!


We don't believe in selling conventional merchandise and gifts so we make our own by upcycling things hence: 'The Papillon Upcycling Shop'. All profits that are made through The Pap Up Shop go straight back into the supporting our charitable work. Details to follow soon about what items we have for sale and how you can buy them.

Please click here to view our photo gallery of the types of items we sell to raise funds.


Become a BIG Buddie

If you are a business, charity or NGO that would like to support our work and become an official partner, we would love to hear from you. We welcome support from organisations that are bigger and more well connected than ourselves, provided we share a similar vision, mission and values.

Please email us to start a conversation. Find out more about our BIG Buddies.
