People across the country are encouraged to thank NHS staff by clapping their hands from their doorsteps, balconies, gardens or windows tonight.
The Clap For Our Carers campaign is set for March 26 at 8pm and will see the nation applaud NHS workers who are working tirelessly to slow the spread of Covid-19 and save lives.
A poster for the campaign says: “During these unprecedented times, they need to know we are grateful.”
The #ClapForOurCarers campaign was kickstarted by Dutch Londoner Annemarie Plas who heard about similar efforts of appreciation in the Netherlands, Spain and France.
The Mayor of Hackney Phillip Glanville has said he will be clapping for our carers and asks others to do the same.
