Millions of people stood on their doorsteps and applauded the front-line workers and carers in the Clap for Carers during the first national lockdown.
The official https://clapforourcarers.co.uk/ website has announced
Clap For Our Carers is back for ‘Lockdown 3’, but this time we’ve widened our campaign and updated our name to Clap For Heroes!
Clap For Heroes will not only celebrate our NHS, care workers and key workers – from delivery drivers to postal workers, emergency services to teachers – but will also acknowledge every hero who has played their part through the pandemic, including but not limited to: home-schoolers, neighbours, scientists, volunteers, all those who wear masks when out, those who have stayed at home and socially distanced, shop workers, those in the Arts and hospitality sectors, everyone who has battled or is still battling Covid-19 (or caring for a loved one who is unwell), and also those sorely missed loved ones and friends who have been tragically lost to the virus.
Please join us on doorsteps and balconies (wearing masks and at a safe social distance) across the UK this Thursday at 8pm and let’s show our appreciation to all our heroes!
I`ll be on my doorstep at 8pm tonight and every Thursday evening and hope as many as possible will show their support for these true heroes.
It seems the very least we can do. they are all heroes to me, especially my paramedic son
Each and every one of us should be out there showing our appreciation
It seems it was largely ignored amid calls for better pay for nurses as they deserve more than applause
