We would like to invite as many Deaf, hearing and BSL interpreters as possible to join the choir.

Now the FUN bit!: After 30th November we need you to record yourself signing the song, (using your mobile phone ) then send me your recordings. We will create a professional video of everyone signing..

The video end product will go on as many social media platforms as possible with ‘Where is the Interpreter’ JustGiving page attached to enable people to donate.

We want to raise as much money and awareness as we can, we cannot do it without you!

Please come and join Fletch, Liv and I on the 16th November 7pm – see you there!
