A Broads pub is hoping a Wayne Rooney shirt will bring a World Cup boost to a hospice charity.

A 2004 white England shirt signed by the star striker is being raffled at the King's Head at Coltishall, with £1 tickets available during the competition, and the winner drawn after the final on July 11.

Proceeds will go to the East Anglian Children's Hospice, which is the chosen charity of the Norwich Inns pub buying group that includes the King's Head.

Publican Kevin Gardner hoped the shirt, donated by friend and customer Stephen Sizer, would make around £500, to match the sum made at the last EACH fund-raiser at the pub, a giant Easter egg.

He added: “England will win the final and Rooney will score the winning goal. Then how much will the shirt be worth?”

To buy tickets drop into the King's Head at Wroxham Road anytime between now and the final.
