Clapping for Carers: How Surrey and Hampshire joined in last night

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 8:19am 17th April 2020. (Updated at 12:09pm 17th April 2020)

For a fourth Thursday night running, Surrey and Hampshire went out on our doorsteps, in our gardens and on our streets to thank health workers during the coronavirus outbreak.

In what has become a regular part of our week in lockdown, people in our area joined others across the country last night (16 April) in paying tribute to those on the frontline during the pandemic, in the 'Clap For Carers' campaign.

Applause, cheers and banging saucepans could be heard across our counties at 8pm as we recognised NHS staff, carers and other healthcare workers for putting their lives on the line.

This time, some also used the campaign to salute Captain Tom Moore, the 99 year old army veteran who has raised more than £17m for the NHS by walking 100 laps of his garden.

Our emergency services also came out in force to take part last night - see some of them here:
