Clap For Our Carers is now taking place on a weekly basis.
What is Clap
For Our Carers?
Clap For Our Carers is a campaign that involves Britons up and down the country applauding National Health Service doctors, nurses, cleaners, and
other healthcare staff on the front line of the battle against coronavirus.
Clap For Our Carers has already provided a much-needed morale boost to the nation, with communities
using it as a way to unite at a time of social distancing measures, and show support for the estimated 1.3 million Britons who work for the NHS.
What time can I join
The applause will take place at 8pm. People across the country will be clapping and cheering on their doorsteps, from their balconies, or in their gardens, with
some banging on pots and pans or even singing and dancing, while keeping a house width apart from their neighbours.
The first nationwide Clap For Our Carers event took place
on Thursday March 26, and the concept gained widespread momentum on social media in the days leading up to it.
It it is now set to happen every Thursday while the coronavirus
pandemic continues to affect day-to-day life in the United Kingdom, with organisers calling for applause at the same time of 8pm every week.
