Forget reindeer...two cute goats were the main attraction at a charity’s annual Christmas celebration.

Sheffield-based Emmaus kick started the festive season with two days fun, shopping and tasty treats.

The charity spread Christmas cheer to its partner agency workers and volunteers by inviting them for mince pies and coffee at its Sipelia Works premises on Cadman Street.

Members of the public were then welcomed into the charity’s retail shop to visit Santa, his elves and two adorable pigmy goats, named Ralph and Rodney.

Graham Bostock, community manager at Emmaus, said: “We enjoyed another successful Christmas celebration.

“Those who came through our doors got into the Christmas spirit with the help of Santa and the elves. The goats were a great attraction.
