An anonymous donor has gifted a York church almost £6million to go towards essential repairs.
The mystery benefactor has given £5.9million to St Michael le Belfrey, which is the parish church next to York Minster where Guy Fawkes was baptised.
The money will be used specifically to fund a major repair project to preserve the 16th-century building for future generations.
The Church of England also hope to turn St Michael be Belfrey into a ‘stunning city centre venue that benefits York’s residents and businesses.’
