Ripon Cathedral celebrates busiest Christmas Fair ever

Seasonal delights pleased visitors at Ripon Cathedral’s recent Christmas fair, which proved to be their busiest fair ever. 
On November 23 the cathedral saw 3,570 visitors through the doors to escape the rain and enjoy the Christmas Gift & Food Fair.
The event raised £24,797, which is the largest amount the event has ever raised.
Visitors enjoyed seasonal music throughout the day, including the Cathedral’s own Youth Choir and Carols for all, plus delicious turkey sandwiches, mulled wine and homemade cake. 
Father Christmas even made time in his busy schedule to put in an appearance to hand out gifts and wish everyone a merry Christmas.
Molly Lawson, Fundraising Events Officer at Ripon Cathedral said: “It’s such a fantastic festive event and was great to see so many people join us for our busiest fair ever! 
“It would not have happened without the fantastic support of our amazing volunteers to whom I am so grateful for giving up their time.”
