Say 'thank-you' - clap for the NHS tonight

Published Thursday, 26 March 2020

People across the country are being asked to join a #clapforcarers event tonight to thank the NHS workers who are working tirelessly throughout the ongoing COVID-19(coronavirus) pandemic in the UK.

Clap for carers

The Clap For Our Carers campaign will see people across the UK applaud NHS workers from the doorsteps, balconies or windows of their homes at 8pm, in order to say thank you for all of their hard work.

The idea behind this campaign is to show our appreciation for doctors, nurses, GPs and every other NHS worker during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, through a nationwide round of applause.

Those joining in should make sure to keep a safe distance from other people.

People are being encouraged to live stream their participation on  social media channels.

Similar events have already been held in countries including Spain, France and the Netherlands.
