Our country has come together to celebrate our heroic healthcare workers who are fighting on the front line to fight COVID-19 while we stay home.
Tayla Porter, age, 22, was met with thunderous applause when she left her home to go to her shift. This immediately brought tears to her eyes as well as her family members.
She was also given a box of chocolates and a homemade cake as signs of gratitude.
Her sister, Ali, said “we barely know anyone on our street. You see each other daily, but you don’t know each other’s names. “Tayla just couldn’t believe it.
She couldn’t believe that people would even notice what she’s doing. She just loves her job. I had no idea the whole street would come out. I just thought it might be our next door neighbours and the house opposite. What I didn’t realise was that every single house had at least one person come out to clap her.
It carried on all the way up our street and you could hear them clapping all the way up the next street too. It must have been people texting people or word of mouth, because not everyone is on there,”.
I just love where we live, everyone in our street united to wave Tayla off on her paramedic shift tonight just the boost she needed 🥰 The heroes chocolates and homemade cake were a lovely touch too xx We could hear the applause all the way up Queens Road too This video is exclusively managed by Kennedy News and media.

Across the country, there have been scheduled claps for healthcare workers, as people briefly step outside their homes to thank those who are working around the clock to make sure that we are all safe.
Taylor, as well as all of our amazing healthcare workers, deserve our utmost gratitude. If you are able, it’s great to make gestures as such, or donate any medical supplies you have laying around the house, as many essentials are in short supply. Together, we can defeat COVID-19.
