The weekly NHS applause, Clap For Our Carers, took place every Thursday at 8pm, allowing people to say thank you to key workers throughout the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

But last Thursday (28 May) was the last Clap For Our Carers event.

Here’s everything you should know about why it’s now ended.

What was the Clap For Our Carers campaign?

The Clap For Our Carers, or #clapforourcarers, campaign saw people throughout the UK applaud NHS workers, delivery drivers, shop workers and other key workers from the doorsteps, balconies or windows of their homes each week.

It offered people the chance to say thank you to key workers during the pandemic, and helped unite communities in their support.

The campaign website said, “Healthcare workers, emergency services, armed services, delivery drivers, shop workers, teachers, waste collectors, manufacturers, postal workers, cleaners, vets, engineers and all those who are out there making an unbelievable difference to our lives in these challenging times… bravo, you are amazing!”
