REFEREE! That’s not a yellow card... it’s surely a straight red for wearing this bright orange Peru hat with a suit.

But South Yorkshire’s own World Cup final referee Howard Webb covered his famous bald head with it to kickstart today’s Woolly Hat Day for Sheffield’s Cathedral Archer Project, to help the homeless.

The Project, celebrating 20 years in the city, is asking people to wear a woolly hat and make a donation.

Schools, companies and individuals have signed up to take part in a bid to raise vital funds for the project, providing food, help and advice behind Sheffield Cathedral.

Organisers hope Woolly Hat Day could become an annual fundraiser to highlight the work of the project.

“It’s really easy to take part. Just wear a woolly – and send in your donations,’’ said spokeswoman Tracy Viner.
