Barnstaple schools are being offered a last chance to sign up for a charity world record attempt for the most young people signing and singing a song simultaneously.

The event run by SignHealth, the national healthcare charity for deaf people, will take place on February 6 at 2.45pm, although participants must register by January 23.

Steve Powell, Chief Executive of SignHealth, said: "More than 900 schools 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."

Any schools, nurseries, colleges, choirs or groups in Barnstaple are eligible to take part and will be asked to sing and sign a song that has been specially composed for the world record attempt.

This year teachers and pupils who sign up for sign2sing will have access to digital resources developed by SignHealth.

The event is designed to raise awareness of deafness and the work of SignHealth, as well as acting as a fundraiser for the charity from a suggested £1 donation from everyone taking part.

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

Schools wishing to take part are invited to register their interest via www.sign2sing.org.uk.
