Newham youngsters urged to sign up for Sign2Sing
Schools across Newham are being urged to take part in an annual fundraiser for a national Deaf healthcare charity.
Those who get involved in SignHealth’s sign2sing Guinness World Record breaking attempt next Februry will have access to digital resources developed by the charity in partnership with Digital Giving.
Steve Powell, Chief Executive at SignHealth, the healthcare charity for Deaf people, said: “The digital resource pack will be available to all schools that register for sign2sing, which is the attempt for the most people signing and singing at the same time, and will include a free whiteboard app.
“We are also hoping to increase Deaf awareness by introducing some basic sign language among a younger generation and believe Digital Giving Ltd has the skills and creativity to help us get the message across to more schools and pupils, including those from Newham, in a fun and entertaining way.”
Sign2sing is SignHealth’s world record breaking attempt for the most people signing and singing a song at the same time while also raising money for the charity.

The money raised from the event will be used to continue the charity’s work to improve the mental and physical health and well-being of Deaf people, including children.
