Heart Beats World Record

It's "hats off" to Heart and a local school who together got a world record for the station's Have a Heart Appeal.

With the help of Heart, staff and students at Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form in Norwich attempted the record for the most number of people simultaneously throwing a chef's hat into the air.

The event took place in their lunch break on Friday 1 March. 

The previous record was held by Brussels set in 2012. But this has now been smashed and a new record has been set by the school at 869 hats. 

Each student made a donation to take part and the unusual feat raised nearly £1000 for the Have a Heart Appeal 2013. 

Ian Clayton School Principal took part and said, "We really enjoyed joining in this challenge from Heart, and I'm thrilled we got the record. It was a fantastic – and fun - way to raise money".

Rob & Chrissie from Heart Breakfast compered the event and staff from the station helped the Heart Angel team with the behind-the-scenes organisation.

Congratulations to everyone at the School and thanks for hosting the event for Heart.
