Tens of thousands of people all over the country are fundraising for SignHealth this week, in our sign2sing event.
Schools, companies, community groups and choirs are singing our specially written songs, and using sign language at the same time. They’re trying to set a new world record and raise money to help SignHealth’s vital work.
All the money raised goes to our work to give Deaf children the same future as their hearing friends, and to provide services to Deaf adults who’ve grown up with inequality.
