Owners of a magic and puppet shop in Great Yarmouth are using their heads to support a good cause next week.

Mike Wallis and Paul Henri, who run Wallis's Wonders in the Victoria Arcade, are dedicating a day to support Brain Tumour Research next week.

The shop is marking the charity's Wear A Hat Day on Friday, March 31, to support the cause in memory of magic legend Paul Daniels, who died of a brain tumour last year.

The pair will be donning silly hats for the day and have pledged to donate 10pc of the day's sales figures to the charity.

They will also be selling pin badges and giving away free tricks to anybody who comes into the shop in a hat themselves - providing they spend more than £10.

Mr Wallis said: 'It was such a tragic loss for the magic community when Paul Daniels died, so we really want to help this cause in his memory.'
