Silent choir raise funds for South East Berkshire Deaf Children's Society and Sound Seekers

A carol concert with a twist was held in Windsor Royal Shopping yesterday afternoon.

Songs were performed by a silent choir who used sign language to music to raise funds for South East Berkshire Deaf Children's Society and Sound Seekers.

 

Signers included past and present students from East Berkshire College's British Sign Language course and their lecturers.

College tutor Pat Foster said: "The concert is a great way for our students to demonstrate their communication skills, raise awareness and raise money for a good cause. Every year, we have a mix of current and former students taking part in the event. Some are advanced signers and others are beginners."

The college, which has campuses in St Leonards Road, Windsor and Station Road, Langley offers a range of sign language courses, from introductory level to level two.

South East Berkshire Deaf Children's Society is run by and for the families of deaf children in Windsor, Maidenhead, Bracknell and Slough. Sound Seekers supports deaf people, particularly children, in the poorest communities of the developing world.
