Clap for carers will make a comeback at 8pm tonight as the nation is expected to applaud frontline NHS workers, care employees and all those affected by the ongoing pandemic. Clap for heroes acknowledges teachers, homeschooling parents, those who are shielding and “every other person who is having a difficult time”. Annemarie Plas, who started the clapping back in March last year, said the comeback aims to “lift spirits” in England amid its third national lockdown.
Ms Plas tweeted earlier this week: “We are bringing back the 8pm applause, in our 3rd national lockdown I hope it can lift the spirit, of all of us.
“Carers, teachers, homeschooling parents, those who shield and ALL who is pushing through this difficult time! Please join & share.”
Applause swarmed the nation for ten weeks straight during the first wave of the pandemic.
The weekly event came to an end on May 28 after Ms Plas said it had become too heavily politicised by people.
