Sign and become a world record holder

Sign and become a world record holder

Schools across the country are being challenged to become world record breakers as they raise money for deaf children.

Students and staff must sing a song and perform it in sign language at the same time as part of the sign2sing fundraising event run by deaf health charity SignHealth.

A world record was set earlier this year when 144,503 people took part in schools and choirs across the country to raise tens of thousands of pounds.

Now, the charity is looking to break that record again.

SignHealth chief executive Steve Powell says: “We want more people than ever to take part in sign2sing. The money makes a real difference to the life experience of deaf children. It also enables SignHealth to provide essential services and projects to help deaf adults who have grown up in a world of inequality.

“Learning some basic sign language through music brings deaf and hearing children together and breaks down communication barriers.”
