National Clap in memory of Captain Tom tonight

The Prime Minister is encouraging the public to clap in honour of Captain Sir Tom Moore at 6pm tonight.  He said the clap would also be  ‘for all those health workers for whom he raised money’

We’d like to extend that and say that while remembering Capt Tom we should also honour the many thousands of people up and down the country who have stepped up during this pandemic in so many ways.  Raising money to help those who have needed support, volunteering to support vulnerable people and those who have been looking out for friends and neighbours who might have needed a little extra help.

It has been a huge (and still ongoing) effort by so many people.  You are all heroes!!
