Clap for Carers is to return under a new name of Clap for Heroes, the initiative’s founder has said.
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.
Founder Annemarie Plas tweeted that it would return at 20:00 GMT on Thursday.
The idea of clapping and banging pots from doorsteps originally began as a one-off to support NHS staff on 26 March – three days after the UK went into lockdown for the first time.
After proving popular it was expanded to cover all key workers and continued every Thursday for 10 weeks, with millions of people across the UK taking part.
Members of the Royal Family and politicians including Prime Minister Boris Johnson also joined in with the show of support.
