    Clap for carers is not just for NHS, so a big clap and thankyou to all those carers amongst us, just because it’s for a family member doesn’t mean it’s less appreciated I’ll be outside at 8pm clapping for all forum users carers and their famies. Thank you.

    I gave my wife the clap too.

    In life, it's not who you know that's important, it's how your wife found out.

    I went out to clap for carers. My partner works in domiciliary care & I felt so proud for this unsung army of people.

    Tonight I will be clapping for all the lorry/delivery people across the country as well as all the carers and NHS staff etc. It’s great to see the country united.

    I can only see a few houses from me but can usually hear the others, my neighbours were out but that maybe because they heard me. I think the main issue is everyone losing track of days and time, next door came out and i must admit I was relieved as for a moment I thought it could be Wednesday lol.

    It’s cold here so no one out, but we clapped at our front window, but didn’t notice anyone else, last week there was a few out.

    Only so many times you can do it before life takes over again,days are merging into each other now I’ll go as far as to say once was enough, the more you do this sort of thing the less the impact is.

     

     

    Both my wife and son are nurses in the NHS and frankly haven’t taken that much notice of the clapping,theyre too busy working and trying to keep ahead of the virus.

    My wife and I clapped for all the essential workers and volunteers who selflessly work to keep us and the country going. As soon as the applause finished, one of our neighbours played abide with me, followed by your never walk alone, very loudly. I thought this was a nice touch, which brought a lump to my throat.

    Thank you to all carers including my wife who is also my carer, and thank you to everyone else doing essential work too.

    I asked them both and both, not surprisingly came back with similar answers, fed up of having to scrimp on PPE,tired..just tired,my wife is the pragmatist she does see herself as an angel or have a calling, its a job one she enjoys but is just so tired of both red and blue playing football with the nursing profession, the man in the street knows the worth of the NHS,shame on the last 10 years in particular wages have stayed the same, but of course now the NHS is the golden child, perhaps when this is over, if it ever is of course, politicians will remember this come pay rise time.

    My son works at Tesco and yesterday he said a man went through his till and handed him a pack of biscuits as a thank you to the staff. He was very grateful.
    We’ve just been to pick up meds & do a biiig ship at Tesco and I did the same as a thank you.
    The young girl at the checkout burst into tears.

    They are still getting some real horrors through the tills, so a little gesture like this goes a huge way.

    They were out in Largs and Fairlie last week.

    My young cousin lives with us down here, his fiancée works in a care home in Largs apparently everyone was clapping her as she went back home after her shift, that was before 8pm but everyone clapped her as she walked by.

    JS honestly the bin crew and all cleaners are so important, I live in London, when they take a weekend plus a bank holiday off the area goes to hell

     

    also did you guys see the large group of people that included police officers, babies and toddlers clapping on the bridge, yes it’s great clap for the nhs but it made me so angry that literally no one was social distancing, how are we ever going to get out of lockdown when things like this are happening

    My Tonight’s choice For clapping will be for the Teachers/Educators across the county. Some have returned to the classroom and some busy adapting to online teaching but all deserve a well eart applause.
