The Clap for our Carers campaign is asking for as many people as possible to clap their hands together on Thursday 26 March at 8pm to thank all doctors, nurses, carers, GPs, pharmacists and other NHS staff working hard to help those affected by the Coronavirus.

While the majority of people are now safely working from home and social-distancing to lower the chances of ourselves and our loved ones catching the deadly virus, for those working on the front line this isn't possible.

Doctors, nurses, porters, emergency call workers and other NHS staff are still going to work every day to keep the health system working.

People across the UK can clap from their gardens, front doors, and balconies to show their support.

A number of celebrities have shared the message including Meghan Markle and Prince Harry and David and Victoria Beckham.
