Tigers Trust sign Caravan of Love for Deaf Awareness Week

4 May 2022

As part of Deaf Awareness Week, the Tigers Trust have produced a British Sign Language (BSL) tribute to The Housemartins’ Caravan of Love.

The song, well-known among the Hull City fanbase, is a 1985 R&B hit originally recorded by Isley-Jasper-Isley.

However, it would be The Housemartins' a cappella version (1986) that would prove popular with the Tigers’ faithful.

To help with the production of the video, participant Flynn Clark recorded a tutorial from which staff could learn their individual lines.

Flynn first attended the Tigers Trust in 2016 under the disability banner due to him being profoundly deaf and has since progressed remarkably, now even volunteering on matchdays as a matchball assistant.

The Trust’s Marketing and Communications Assistant Olly Burdett said: “Inclusivity is very much at the heart of all we do, so raising awareness for campaigns like this is incredibly important for us an organisation.

“We were both glad and thankful to be able to involve Flynn with the construction of the video too as his pathways really embodies all that the Trust stands for.”
