Families across Suffolk will be joining in a second Clap for Our Carers at 8pm tonight, after an overwhelming response to last week’s event.
There were emotional scenes across the area and the whole country last week as people took to their doorsteps to clap and cheer, sharing how proud they are of our NHS workers in the battle against coronavirus.
Tonight’s event will also give a chance to express all our thanks to other key workers carrying out vital tasks on the frontline - from emergency services to shop workers.
Following the first event, many posted videos on social media to praise health workers, in an inspiring show of appreciation.
Twitter user Amanda Polley said: “Well done Ipswich, you didn’t let us down! That was emotional! Thank you to all at the NHS.”
