BUSKERS from across York have come together to raise money for two daughters orphaned in the Manchester Arena terror attack.

Kitty VR, the Hyde Family Jam, Simon Bolley and Laura Kindelan all performed in St Helen's Square on Saturday and will donate their takings to the daughters of Marcin and Angelika Klis, from York, who died in the atrocity.

Taxi driver Marcin, 42, and shop assistant Angelika, 39, were killed as they waited to pick their two daughters up following the Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena on May 22.

As the couple, originally from Poland, waited at their pre-arranged meeting place in the foyer they were caught in the bomb blast.

Kitty VR, a singer and songwriter who organised the day, said local residents had been fully supportive of what was happening.

She said: "York was really busy and there was a lot of people supporting us.

"A few people gave us £5 and £10 at a time, so it has been really well supported."
