More than £105,000 has so far been raised for essential repairs and restoration of York Minster.
The York Minster Fund said that the final amount reached at the second Beef, Beer and Bubbles dinner at York Minster far outstripped the £72,000 total raised at the first event in 2014.
The dinner, held in the minster’s north transept, was organised by the fund with the support of businesses across Yorkshire but especially with the help of Dovecote Park (the Beef), Timothy Taylor’s, Thwaites Brewery and Heineken (the Beer) and Majestic Wines (the Bubbles). William Jackson Food Group (Aunt Bessie’s) provided Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes and the meal was finished off with coffee and chocolates provided by Bettys of Harrogate.
The 275 guests heard a grace sung by the York Minster Choir and then pitted their wits against each other in a general knowledge quiz. They also bid for items in a special auction led by Richard Waring from Thomlinsons of Wetherby.
