Dean drives Cathedral plans onto the buses

The Dean of Wakefield, Jonathan Greener, got behind the wheel of an Arriva bus outside the city's cathedral yesterday.

Bus company Arriva Yorkshire is teaming up with Wakefield Cathedral over the next few months to help raise 5m for their redevelopment plans, which include essential repairs and conservation work.

The bus company will also run a competition offering people the chance to be the face of a new poster campaign to raise the cathedral's profile.

Called 'I love Wakefield Cathedral because…', the test is for people to sum up what the cathedral means to them in no more than 20 words. The winners will feature in posters on the backs of Arriva buses. Entry leaflets are available on local buses and in the cathedral.
