Last chance for pupils to join record attempt
CITY schools are this month being offered the last chance to sign up for a charity record breaker for the most young people signing and singing a song simultaneously.
Teachers, parents and children are being invited to register for SignHealth's sign2sing world record breaking attempt on February 6 by Wednesday January 23.
Steve Powell, chief executive of SignHealth, the national healthcare charity for deaf people, said: "More than 900 schools, including nine from Plymouth, have so far signed up for sign2sing but we are hoping around 1,200 schools will participate to ensure we break our current world record.
"The closing date for registrations is Wednesday, January 23, so we are urging schools to sign up as soon as possible, so they have time to learn and rehearse the song."
The event is designed to raise awareness of deafness and the work of SignHealth, as well as acting as a fundraiser for the charity with a suggested £1 donation from everyone taking part.
The money raised will help continue the charity's work to improve the mental and physical health and well-being of deaf people, including deaf children.
