Organised by Clap for our Carers, the mass display of appreciation is set to take place at 8pm tonight (Thursday 26th March) in a bid to honour the doctors, GPS, nurses, pharmacists and emergency services taking care of COVID-19 patients during these strange and scary times.

"During these unprecedented times they need to know that we are grateful," organisers of the event said, explaining the sweet idea.

Supermarkets like Sainsbury's, Asda and Tesco have brought in dedicated hours for medical workers to ensure they don't go without, while a whole range of eateries from Costa to Starbucks to Greggs offered freebies to the NHS ahead of the lockdown.

And it's not just food outlets offering discounts, MissGuided is offering 40 per cent off for all NHS staff, too. Result!

If this pandemic has shown us one thing, it's who the real heroes of society are.

We'll certainly be applauding them at 8pm. See you all there.
