Ripon’s own commemorative Jubilee mug has gone on sale to help raise money for the city’s celebrations.
The mug will be given as a gift to primary school children, while residents and visitors have the chance to buy one of their own as a souvenir of the historic occasion.
The mug features the Ripon city crest on one side and the official Diamond Jubilee emblem, designed by a Blue Peter competition winner, on the other.
Money raised from sales will go towards the city’s Christmas lighting and the staging of a live simulcast in the city of the BBC’s Last Night of the Proms concert in September.
The concert will be shown live, for free, via a big screen on Ripon’s market square.
The Jubilee mugs are on sale priced £7 from the Knowledge Magnet, Deli on Duck Hill, Ripon Walled Garden, Memorable Moments, Fountains Abbey and Ripon Tourist Information Centre.
The mugs are also available via the Knowledge Magnet’s website www.expresstoyshop.co.uk, with free UK delivery.
