Appeal for schools’ sign2sing Guinness World Record evidence
12:30pm Monday 25th February 2013 in News
A CALL has gone out to schools which participated in a world record attempt earlier this month.
Schoolchildren from Weymouth and other towns look set to have broken the sign2sing Guinness World Record for the most people signing and singing a song simultaneously, organised by national healthcare charity SignHealth on February 6.
But not all participants have sent in the essential information, say organisers.
Chief Executive of SignHealth Steve Powell said: “We need the witness statement forms along with photographic or video evidence to send to Guinness World Records, so they can officially confirm we have broken the world record. It’s vital we have these or all the children’s hard work won’t count.
“We’re calling for all schools that took part to send in their paperwork.”
Mr Powell said it is believed more than 135,000 children took part around the country in sign2sing. The previous world record, set last year, was 114,277.
Schools need to send in their completed witness statement forms, video or photographic evidence and funds raised to SignHealth, 5, Baring Road, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, HP9 2NB by Friday, March 15.
