We are very grateful for all the amazing work the health service and everyone else who is making a positive difference is currently doing.

Following the example of Spain, France, The Netherlands and India, the UK is organising a #clapforourcarers event tonight (Thursday 26th March) at 8 pm where we can show our appreciation with a massive round of applause.

You can clap your hands on your doorstep, balcony or indoors and share it online through social media.

Hoping you all stay safe and well,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
