Clap For Our Carers will take place this Thursday (26 March) at 8pm in the UK.
A round of applause will take place on Thursday to support doctors, nurses and other NHS staff in their hard work during the coronavirus pandemic. Members of the public who can are being encouraged to clap from their homes, balconies, gardens, or wherever is convenient – while of course ensuring they are a safe distance from others.
The official invite reads: "During these unprecedented times they need to know that we are grateful. Please join us on 26th March at 8pm for a big applause (from front doors, garden, balcony, windows, living rooms, etc) to show all nurses; doctors; GPs and carers our appreciation for their ongoing hard world and fight against this virus.
Please share this message, so we can make sure the word spreads and reaches all to join.
