Sally Phillips will host an exclusive evening of entertainment to support a campaign launched for teenagers with additional needs in Teddington.

Best known for her role as Miranda in Bridget Jones, the actress is inviting 30 people to join her for an exclusive night of chatting and signing cheesy pop-songs, on September 8, at the Railway pub, in Teddington.

The campaign has been launched by Makaton signing duo, Suzanne Miell-Ingram and Tracy Upton, from Twickenham, also known as Singing Hands, who want to produce age-appropriate pop music resources for teenagers and young adults with special needs.

Ms Miell-Ingram said: “The evening is billed as a ‘Makaton Mummies Night Out’ because we love a bit of alliteration, but it is very much open to everyone, whether or not you know how to sign Makaton.

“It will be an absolute blast and we’re so grateful to Sally for making it happen."

The singing duo will join the Bridget Jones’ actress on stage to show off a few Makaton signs to the crowds.

Singing Hands are familiar to millions of pre-school aged children via music and videos with their version of ‘Wheels on the Bus alone reaching over 30 million views on Youtube and now want to create an album and DVD of pop music videos for older kids, teenagers and young adults – who currently do not have any resources.
