BOTTOMS up!

Visitors to Doncaster’s tourist information centre raised a mug to the county as the venue marked Yorkshire Day with a host of food and drink give-aways.

Tourist information assistant Steve Kimber was kept busy with the teapot as free cuppas were dished out to mark the county’s annual event yesterday.

As well as handing up brews, visitors tucked into cake at the Blue Building, on High Street in Doncaster town centre.

Doncaster based bakery Cooplands provided cakes for the event, along with Harrogate’s famous Betty’s.

The fun and games started at 11am and lasted for three hours.

And there was also a raffle to raise cash for the Doncaster Kidney Association and the Aurora Centre.

The Aurora Centre, based at Doncaster Royal Infirmary, provides non clinical treatments for cancer patients, such as beauty therapy.

Mayor of Doncaster Peter Davies said he thought there was no better place to celebrate Yorkshire Day.
