PORTSMOUTH schoolchildren taking part in a charity world record breaking attempt next month are being asked to raise money by wearing a scarf.
Sign2sing is a record breaking attempt for the most people signing and singing a song at the same time.
Deaf charity SignHealth, is inviting people to wear a scarf like the children’s book character Olli the monkey in return for a suggested £1 donation on Wednesday, February 6.
Steve Powell, chief executive at the SignHealth, said: ‘We are asking everyone taking part to wear a scarf – like our mascot Olli the monkey, who is rarely seen without his bright blue scarf – to school on the day of Sign2sing and take in their £1 donation.
‘Teachers and parents are welcome to join in too. The money raised from the event will be used to continue our work helping to improve the mental and physical health and wellbeing of deaf people, including deaf children.’
Registrations close next Wednesday.
