The celebration for NHS staff, formally known as ‘Clap for Carers’, returned under the new name of ‘Clap for Heroes’ on the 7th of January, announced by the initiative's founder, Annemarie Plas.
The weekly applause for front-line NHS staff and other key workers ran for 10 weeks during the UK's first coronavirus lockdown last spring. This time the initiative is celebrating not just NHS and key workers but also extends to home-schooling parents, those who are shielding and all who are pushing through this period.
