Special Thanks to ST. JOHNS SHOPPING CENTRE
DEE-SIGN BRITISH SIGN LANGUAGE CHOIR would like to thank ST. JOHNS SHOPPING CENTRE, LIVERPOOL, for granting us permission to perform and collect for two charities connected with Music and Deafness.
SIGN HEALTH, teach Deaf children about;
- healthy relationships;
- Provide essential daily living support;
- Develop health resources and campaigns;
- Help Deaf people with mental health problems;
- Support Deaf women affected by domestic abuse.
SIGN2SING is an annual fund raising event which supports SIGN HEALTH. Those who take part in Sign2Sing learn to sign to a specially written song, and help raise money at the same time. Businesses, schools, choirs, emergency services, Brownies, Beavers, church groups and more, are among those who take part. School children simply take £1 to school, adults take £5 to work. No BSL skills needed as DVD with tutorial is supplied and also available on their website.

YOUTH MUSIC, Each year, they invest in over 350 projects around the country, giving 75,000 young people the chance to regularly make music. These are young people facing really tough challenges in their lives, like poverty, disability or mental health issues, to give just a few examples.

We would also like to thank the generous shoppers for their donation of £770.50p minus choir expenses of £55.71 = £714.79 making a total of £357.40p to each charity – and last but by no means least, the lovely box of chocolates from Thorntons to share with the choir during their 4 half hour performance.
Thanks also to all Dee-Sign Choir members and collectors, and friends (all volunteers) Deaf, hard of hearing, disabled and hearing – for their support over many years.
