Hundreds of people are ready to pull on their hats tomorrow and support our campaign to protect vulnerable elderly people this winter. The Evening News is urging people to support Age Concern's Wear a Hat Day to help buy cold alarms for the elderly in the Lothians.

Supporters will pay £1 – and wear their favourite hat – in order to back the campaign aiming to stop pensioners dying in their homes from cold-related illnesses.
