A Norfolk and Waveney based charity's Guinness World Record attempt in online hat throwing has received the backing of Norwich City legend Iwan Roberts.

Headway, a charity which supports people after they have experienced a brain injury, aims to break the record for the most hats thrown in the air simultaneously in a mass Zoom call at 4pm on Friday, May 21 as part of Hats for Headway Day.

Mr Roberts is among those backing the record-breaking attempt and is encouraging people to sign up to help the charity with its efforts - Headway needs more than 100 people.

Mr Roberts said: "Through their incredible services, they help people to get back on their feet and rediscover lost confidence, independence and skills after a life-changing brain injury or stroke.

"It’s something that could happen to any of us, or any family member, at any time.
