Britain to Clap for Carers for fifth week tonight

Mason Moore | Hinckley Reporter | 23 April 2020

The fifth week of Clap for our Carers shall take place tonight at 8pm.

For the past four weeks, residents all over Britain have been clapping for NHS front-line workers, carers and other keyworkers.

Hinckley and Nuneaton have been taking part in the clapping for four consecutive weeks as a part of the Clap for our Carers campaign.

The Clap for our Carers campaign was set up by 36-year-old mother-of-one, Dutch Londoner, Annemarie Plias.

Plias noticed other countries showing their collective gratitude by clapping in unison, so she wanted to show her appreciation in the United Kingdom with a timed clap in unison.

The campaign has proved to be a success with residents in households all across Britain taking part each Thursday night at 8pm.

In more recent weeks, residents have been showing their appreciation to keyworkers with more methods than just clapping, like using party kazoos, car horns, hitting pots and pans together and even setting off fireworks.
