Total to give €100M for Notre Dame repair

Total S.A will donate €100 million towards the restoration of the Notre Dame Cathedral following a fire at the church, the French oil giant's CEO Patrick Pouyanne said on Tuesday.

Earlier, billionaires Francois Pinault vowed to donate €100 million, while Bernard Arnault and his LVMH luxury brands group pledged €200 million to rebuild the iconic Paris landmark.

The Notre Dame was severely damaged after a fire broke out on Monday, causing the roof and spire to collapse. However, firefighters managed to to save the main structure of the church and completely extinguish the flames after a nine-hour long operation.
