Campaign organiser


With Covid-19 turning the whole world upside down, thousands of people suddenly found themselves doing incredible things to help others. Watching on the news how people in other countries were showing their collective gratitude through a timed applause en masse, Dutch Londoner Annemarie Plas, felt inspired to organise something similar across the UK.

Annemarie has no ties to government or the NHS, she is just a hugely grateful mum staying at home like so many of us, who wanted to show her appreciation for all the key workers doing their bit to keep the world turning. She clearly captured the mood of the nation, as the first Clap For Our Carers applause was a resounding national success, the second was absolutely huge and now it’s a weekly event, taking place every Thursday at 8pm.
