Brits are being urged to applaud our NHS coronavirus heroes again on Thursday evening and clap for our carers, at 8pm tonight.
Last Thursday, the initiative saw Brits from all over the country applauding the NHS staff and carers from their front doors, windows and balconies.
Those behind the clap for our NHS staff and carers campaign, wrote on its website, “Healthcare workers, emergency services, armed services, delivery drivers, shop workers, teachers, waste collectors, manufacturers, postal workers, cleaners, vets, engineers and all those who are out there making an unbelievable difference to our lives in these challenging times… bravo, you are amazing!”
The person behind the campaign also wrote on its website, “In Spain, France and the Netherlands they already did this.
“And being a Dutch Londoner, I want to pass this on in the country I feel so at home, and the NHS had been nothing but amazing to my family and myself!”
An NHS consultant anaesthetist, heard the applause on his way home from work at a London hospital last Thursday evening.
The NHS consultant said, “It was really touching to hear the applause.
“We’re all so worried about whether we’re going to be able to be there for all the patients who are going to need us over the coming weeks and months and knowing that the public have got our backs was much needed.
“Hearing the clapping told us that people out there know how hard everyone has been working to get ahead of the coming surge as much as we can, and that has given us a boost – a reminder that there’s a world outside the frantic bubble of Covid-related work we’ve all been living in for weeks now.”
