The Clap For Our Carers campaign saw people up and down the country step outside their homes to show appreciation for the NHS workers who are working tirelessly during the coronavirus pandemic.

At 8pm on Thursday night, Britons put their hands together after the message was circulated on TV and social media.

Thousands of people from all walks of life including sports stars, celebrities and politicians took part in the show of love.

Boris Johnson tweeted: “On behalf of the whole country, I want to thank all the incredible nurses, doctors, NHS support staff & carers who are working flat out to fight coronavirus.” While Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis joined the round of applause from their home in Norfolk which was shared by Kensington Palace.

From everyone at The Phoenix Newspaper we salute all of our NHS staff and all of the essential workers keeping everything moving as normally as possible.
