CHESTER schools are 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 from the city 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, which is the national healthcare charity for deaf people, said: “More than 900 schools, including St Theresa’s Catholic Primary School in Chester, 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.

“In 2012, 114,277 children took part in our second sign2sing event and broke our previous record. We are once again inviting schoolchildren and also parents, if they’d like to join in, to take part in our Guinness World Records attempt for the most people signing and singing a song at the same time.”
