People flocked to a Mother’s Day tea party hosted by the Lord Mayor of Bradford.

The fundraiser, hosted by Lord Mayor Councillor Khadim Hussain, saw a T-shirt signed by Bradford heartthrob Zayn Malik and his bandmates in One Direction raffled off. Coun Hussain said: “The day was superb. It was very busy.”

The proceeds will go to the Lord Mayor’s appeal, which this year is in aid of Bradford Disability Sports and Leisure. The Lord Mayor has also revealed the gift he is donating to the city to mark his year in office. He will buy a chain to go with the ‘junior Lord Mayor’ outfit, which children can try on. A collection by Councillors and Council staff was also held to buy Coun Hussain a memento. He will buy a clock.
