Schoolchildren across Kingston are being urged to sign up to be part of a record breaking attempt.
SignHealth, which is organising the sign2sing event, is inviting participants to wear a scarf like the children's book character in return for a suggested £1 donation on Wednesday 6th February 2013.
Steve Powell, Chief Executive at the national deaf healthcare charity SignHealth, explained: "sign2sing is our world record breaking attempt for the most people signing and singing a song at the same time.
Teachers and parents are welcome to join in too.
The money raised from the event will be used to improve the mental and physical health and well-being of deaf people.
The closing date for registrations is Wednesday, January 23. Donations can be made after the event by contacting SignHealth on 01494 687600.
The project is in its third year and the current world record is 114,277.
So far more than 950 schools, including Coombe Hill Infants' School on Coombe Lane West in Kingston upon Thames, have signed up to join in with the event.
