The hills will literally be alive to the sound of music when Chester’s Dee Sign Choir perform some of their favourite songs in British Sign Language on the summit of Mount Snowdon this summer.

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough will definitely be in the repertoire when the award-winning choir perform at the 3,560 foot summit to raise funds for the work of Cheshire leading deafness charity Deafness Support Network (DSN).

The event is part of the charity’s 40th anniversary celebrations.

The choir will be accompanied by a team of DSN volunteers who are taking part in the Snowdon Challenge, a sponsored bid to scale Wales’ highest mountain via the nine-mile Llanberis route.

The charity is appealing for more people to join them on June 26.

The choir is made up of parents of deaf children, British Sign Language students, volunteers and members of the deaf community.

DSN fundraising manager Rhys Edwards said: “This will be a great adventure for the choir and the supporters who will be taking part in the challenge.

“The funds we raise from this and other events in our anniversary year will help maintain and extend the wide range of services that DSN provides for the growing numbers of Cheshire people whose quality of life and well-being is seriously undermined as a result of their hearing loss.”
