Businessman and art collector Bernard Arnault announced last night his family will donate £172.7m (€200m) towards the rebuilding of Notre Dame. The outstanding gesture was followed by another generous donation by the hands of billionaire François-Henri Pinault, who announced with a statement he will give France £86.3m (€100m) to help to reconstruct the cathedral. Mr Pinault, who is married to actress Salma Hayek, told French daily Le Figaro he hopes the money would help to “completely rebuild Notre Dame”.
