At 8pm last night there were emotional scenes across Suffolk as families came out on to their doorsteps to clap NHS workers.
On social media people from Ipswich, Felixstowe and the rest of Suffolk posted videos and shared how proud they are of our NHS workers as they help battle coronavirus.
Posting on the Ipswich Star Facebook page, Maria Clare Manning said: “Lots of clapping in Claydon on Thornhill, so chuffed. It brought tears to many people’s eyes.”
Jason Alexander posted a video from Bixley Farm near Ipswich, saying: “ Wow! So many joining in to show their appreciation for the outstanding work being done by the NHS and other carers during this challenging time.
“We salute you, you magnificent bunch!”
It is now hoped the #ClapForTheNHS will be a weekly event - it was even supported by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who shared a sweet video of their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis clapping for NHS carers.
