People across West Norfolk show support for healthcare workers in national Clap for Carers campaign




Whether it was out the front door, a window or in the garden, residents in West Norfolk put their hands together to show their support for healthcare workers last night.

Applause and cheers could be heard in numerous places across the borough as thousands of people took part in the national Clap for our Carers campaign.

The campaign asked for people to show their support for frontline NHS staff working hard during the coronavirus outbreak by clapping together at 8pm.

People across the area also took to social media afterwards to thank others for taking part – with many describing the emotions brought about by the moment of togetherness.

On Twitter, Kelly Elkins said she was "so proud" to work at Lynn's Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

"Thank you to each and everyone at @RAF_Marham who came out to show their support for the @NHSuk, feeling quite emotional at all the amazing support. Everyone in all roles are doing a fantastic job keep up the amazing work xx."

And the Maternity team at the QEH also showed their appreciation for their colleagues by taking part in the campaign.

A post on their Twitter account, posted along with a video of some of the team applauding, said: "To our fellow NHS workers at team QEH you are doing a grand job. Stay strong.

"We’ve got this. Love QEH Maternity xx #bettertogether."

Meanwhile, after national media reported earlier this week that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family had relocated to Anmer Hall on the Sandringham Estate, a video of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis clapping for NHS workers was shared on the Kensington Palace social media accounts.

The post said: "To all the doctors, nurses, carers, GPs, pharmacists, volunteers and other NHS staff working tirelessly to help those affected by #COVID19: thank you.

"#ClapForOurCarers #ClapForNHS."
