Acknowledgements


We want to shout out a huge thanks to all our supporters and partners who have helped us create and share our messages, and who have enabled the Clap For Our Carers movement to keep growing. Applause… we couldn’t have done it without you!

Our applause to:

 

Creative Clinic – our amazing branding, digital, marketing, social media and strategy agency who designed our logo, all our assets and collateral, our website, our social channels and weekly posts (all generously pro-bono, cheers guys) and whose creativity, strategic thinking and advice every week, has helped to make Clap For Our Carers such an incredible success. Check out their fab work at thecreativeclinic.com

Her Majesty The Queen, Elizabeth II – who said in her recent video address to the nation that Clap For Our Carers across the UK was an “expression of our national spirit”

The amazing support we have had from broadcast media – particularly BBC 1, BBC Radio and BBC News, Channel 5, Sky News, Sky One and ITV who as well as news coverage, also ‘paused’ their usual broadcast on 2nd April so that viewers could go outside to clap, and to Channel 4 who staged a special ad break takeover on the same night

All manner of celebrities and public figures who have lent their support, helped spread our messages and clapped for our carers – far too many to mention here but including His Royal Highness Charles, Prince of Wales; Her Royal Highness Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall; Prime Minister Boris Johnson; Nicola Sturgeon; The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan; Dominic Raab; Rishi Sunak; Sir Keir Starmer; David and Victoria Beckham; Daniel Craig; Sir Rod Stewart; Stormzy; Phoebe Waller-Bridge; Sir Elton John; Emma Willis; Claudia Winkleman; Declan Donnelly; Holly Willoughby; Cheryl Tweedy; Katie Price; Brian May; Kate Garraway; Gaby Roslin; Rita Ora; Rachel Weisz; Phillip Schofield; Eamonn Holmes; Myleene Klass; Gemma Collins; Sir Paul McCartney; Ricky Gervais and Kylie Minogue

Support from social media platforms including Facebook (specific thanks to Nicola Mendelsohnsee here) and TikTok for the amazing challenges

Spotify for Thank You Thursday playlists and running ads encouraging people to clap
