LBC News and all our sister stations at Global have said thank you to our brave NHS staff putting their lives on the line to tackle the coronavirus and keep us all safe.
The UK – and the rest of the world – are going through something the likes of which has never been seen before.
The spread of coronavirus across the globe has forced us to stop doing things that for so long we’ve taken for granted… our favourite sports postponed, the concerts of our favourite artists cancelled, our favourite restaurants closed – we really have pressed pause on life as we know it here in the UK.
We’re being asked to social distance, to self-isolate, and in some cases to not see our loved ones.
And although we might be alone, we’re doing this, together – to help protect the lives of everyone.
Yet throughout all this, there are key groups of people whose lives aren’t on pause, in fact, they’re busier than ever.
One of those groups are the men and women of the NHS who are working tirelessly to try and protect us, the Great British public.
They really are the unsung heroes of this country – and, even though this is only the beginning of what looks set to be a challenging and difficult few months, we here at LBC want them to know, on behalf of you and everybody listening right now – how much they are appreciated.
Which is why everyone at Global and across the UK will be joining together to applaud and say thank you.
You might have seen the hashtag #ClapForOurCarers trending on social media for the last few weeks and tonight here at LBC News, along with all of Global’s radio stations, we will be taking a minute out to Applaud Our NHS Heroes.
At 8pm this evening – we’ll stop everything – to take a minute to put our hands together and make some noise for the doctors, nurses, carers, GP’s, pharmacists and all the NHS staff who are working hard to help those affected by coronavirus.
Turn your radio up and open your windows and front doors, stand on your balcony or in your garden and show your support.
And the Great British Public are ensuring that those on the frontline are not alone, with hundreds of thousands signing up to donate their time and energy to the cause.
