Clap for NHS workers: WATCH moment entire nation comes together to thank our NHS heroes | UK | News

In a heartwarming tribute, people across the UK joined together to thank frontline NHS workers that have been putting their lives on the line while they help to fight the coronavirus outbreak in the UK. The ‘Clap For Our Carers’ campaign called for people isolating and distancing in their homes around the country to clap to show their appreciation for NHS workers at 8pm on March 26. Campaign organiser Annemarie Plas told Sky News: “This is for us to show them appreciation of what they do for us. I was hoping that we could continue this clapping every Thursday until the end of the lockdown.”

The royals also made sure to participate in the appreciation.

Kensington Royal posted a video to their Twitter account of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis clapping for the NHS.

Prince Edward and his wife, Sophie, were joined be their children in a separate video.

The Queen’s youngest son gave his own little speech thanking frontline staff.

He told the nation: “I want to thank everyone who’s been following the clear rules we set out on Monday, everyone in the NHS and everyone in public services.

“I want to offer a special thank you to everyone who has now volunteered to help the NHS.

“When we launched the appeal last night, we hoped to get 250,000 volunteers over a few days.

“But I can tell you that just over 24 hours, 405,000 people have responded to the call.

“They will be absolutely crucial in the fight against this virus.”
