LORD Mayor Coun Alan Law and top business representatives sported unusual attire for a charity fundraising event.

The city’s first citizen and his consort daughter Nichola Ashton donned fleecy headwear, as well as their usual chains of office, in support of the Cathedral Archer Project’s Woolly Hat Day.

They were joined by business leaders including Assay Master Ashley Carson, who wore a blue number to complement his suit.

Tim Renshaw, chief executive of the Cathedral Archer Project, said: “We also had people including referee Howard Webb taking part. There were 30 groups who agreed to wear hats in support of our charity and, although we have so far received money raised from less than a third of them, we have already collected £1,100.

“We are expecting to raise a total of around £2,000.” Money collected from the event will help fund the project’s work with Sheffield’s homeless.
