Capital XTRA is showing love to all our NHS workers by supporting #ClapForOurCarers this Thursday night.

The UK, and the rest of the world, is going through something that has never been seen ever before. Sports fixtures have been postponed, concerts cancelled, cafes, restaurants, community centres, and churches and more have been closed. And being a Dutch Londoner, I want to pass this on in the country I feel so at home, and the NHS had been nothing but incredible to my family and myself!'

A nationwide event to celebrate and thank those who are caring for us during the coronavirus pandemic is to take place tomorrow evening - and we'd love you to get involved! And although we might be alone, we're doing this, together - to help protect the lives of everyone. Tonight, it's time for us to join together and say thank you for their wonderful work in this time.

They really are the unsung heroes of this country. Which is why, this Thursday, we're coming together, for them.

At 8pm tomorrow (Thursday), the nation will pause for a mass applause, to recognise the enormous efforts of NHS workers.

Members of the public are being encouraged to take part - while maintaining social distancing and self-isolation - by standing in their front garden, or opening their windows, or balcony if they have one and joining in with a minute's applause. This Thursday, us here at Classic FM - along with all of Global's radio stations - will be taking a minute out to Applaud Our NHS Heroes.
