Cameron John and Donny Dog get in the Christmas spirit with a light switch on at Doncaster School for the Deaf
The pair joined actors from Cast’s panto Aladdin as they helped light up the building.
For the students and staff at the school – and for those who pass the school as part of their daily lives – the light switch on marks the start of the Christmas.
Alexis Johnson, executive principal at Doncaster Deaf Trust said: “People are always telling me that seeing our Christmas lights is often the start of the festive season for them.
“We were thrilled this year to welcome our friends from Doncaster Rovers who have done so much to support our pupils this year and have actively participated in Deaf Awareness training. Donny Dog will switch on our lights along with stars from Cast’s fully British Sign Language integrated pantomime, Aladdin.”
Cameron John said: “It was great to be part of the Christmas celebrations at the school and the light switch on. I’ve been living in Doncaster for two and a half years and the Christmas lights at the school are my favourite in the town.
“I know that the club and school have a 140-year history so it’s great to be part of things like this and it was great to meet the school students.”
