NDCS Christmas Campaign
“With Christmas coming, here at the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) we’re committed to improving deaf awareness and making the festive season deaf-friendly.
Every Christmas, our staff members get together to learn how to sign our favourite Christmas songs before holding performances, while raising funds through a collection. Everybody who takes part delights in coming together to learn, or brush up on, their Christmas signs. We’d like to invite you to come and see us in Trafalgar Square on Monday 14 December from 7-8pm; this is just a little taster of what our signed choir will be performing.
How you can help
But why should we have all the fun? This year, we’re inviting you to join our ‘Signed Songs’ fundraising campaign. Signed songs is a fantastic opportunity to embrace the spirit of Christmas: learn to sign your favourite Christmas songs and carols while raising funds to help us support deaf children and their families.
If you know a group holding a carol performance this Christmas, why not ask if they can add a signed song to their repertoire and organise a collection for us? You don’t need to have any knowledge of British Sign Language; it’s a perfect opportunity to learn!
Whether it’s at school, a choir or your office Christmas party, Signed Songs is a fantastic way to raise deaf awareness, get into the Christmas spirit and raise vital funds for us.
There are more than 45,000 deaf children living in the UK, NDCS believes that every deaf child should have the same opportunities as any other child.”
