Notre-Dame is a beacon of hope and beauty
– Bob Iger
Disney has donated US$5m (€4.4m, £3.8m) toward the restoration efforts of Notre-Dame Cathedral, following the huge fire that destroyed much of the iconic landmark in Paris, France.

The 850-year-old Gothic building – a Unesco World Heritage site and one of the world’s most recognisable attractions, welcoming more than 13 million visitors each year – caught fire on 15 April. with its spire and roof badly damaged as a result.

Disney’s pledge is one of many large ones made to the cathedral to help rebuild it, with donations reaching the hundreds of millions.

"Notre-Dame is a beacon of hope and beauty that has defined the heart of Paris and the soul of France for centuries, inspiring awe and reverence for its art and architecture and for its enduring place in human history," said Disney CEO Bob Iger.

"Disney stands with our friends and neighbours in the community, offering our heartfelt support as well as a US$5M donation for the restoration of this irreplaceable masterpiece."
