Horsham schools that participated in the world record attempt for the most people signing and singing a song simultaneously are being urged to return their official witness statement forms.
Schoolchildren from the town look set to have broken the sign2sing Guinness World Record, organised by SignHealth on Wednesday, February 6, but not all participants have sent in the essential information.
Steve Powell, Chief Executive of SignHealth, 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 from the Horsham area that took part to send in their paperwork to confirm they participated in the event. We believe more than 135,000 children took part in sign2sing but without the evidence we are unable to verify the actual number.
“The previous world record, which we set last year, was 114,277 so we are hoping to have smashed this. Our 2013 event was truly fantastic and we’re extremely grateful to everyone who took part.”
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, 2013.
