Sign up to help break singing and signing record attempt
8:00am Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
Children and adults from Falmouth and Helston are being invited to sign up for a record breaking attempt for the most people signing and singing on the same day.
The national deaf healthcare charity, SignHealth is hoping more than 150,000 people, including several hundred from Falmouth, will join in with the annual event, which is set to take place on February 5, next year.
Steve Powell, chief executive at SignHealth, said: “Earlier this year 116,980 teachers and pupils across the country took part in our third sign2sing event and broke the Guinness World Records. The previous record, which we also set, was 114,277.
“On February 5, 2014, we are once again inviting children and adults alike to take part in our world record attempt for the most people signing and singing a song on the same day.
“This year we are hoping businesses, choirs, community groups and other organisations as well as schools join in too. Our aim for the 2014 event is to inspire our next generation of healthcare professionals about the importance of good communication.”
Everyone who registers for sign2sing will have access to digital resources, which will be available for download from www.sign2sing.org.uk from the end of September.
People who are unable to take part in the record breaking attempt on February 5 are invited to join in with the events during sign2sing week, which takes place from February 3 to 9.
