Steve Powell, chief executive at SignHealth, the healthcare charity for deaf people, said: “We are delighted to have broken the world record for the second year running and we are going to try and beat it again next year.”

The attempt is also a method of raising money for the charity. Ancaster youngsters raised £95 for the good cause.
