Going digital helps singing record bid in Swindon
12:14pm Tuesday 18th September 2012 in News
SWINDON schools will find it easier to participate in an annual fundraiser for a national deaf healthcare charity, after it announced that the event is getting a digital makeover.
Teachers and pupils involved in SignHealth’s sign2sing Guinness World RecordTM breaking attempt next February, 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 believe the move to go digital will make event participation even more accessible and are hoping it will mean lots more Swindon schools will take part in the event next February.”
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 project is in its third year and the current record is 114,277.
On Wednesday, February 6, young people from all over the country and overseas will sign and sing a song, entitled sign2sing, which has been composed especially for the event.
