David Beckham did his best to support the NHS and hit the pavement with his family
On Instagram, football icon Beckham posted a short video showing himself and his kids huddled together clapping and thanking them.
She could hear the images taken by his wife Victoria say, “We Beckham’s all clap to express our thanks to all the people who work so hard for the NHS, all the doctors, and all the nurses who protect us. ‘
Beckham himself added, “Especially away from your families, we are so proud of you, thank you very much.”
At the same time, in North London, the famous arch of the Wembley Stadium was lit in blue as a tribute to the National Health Service.

Leicester star Jamie Vardy quickly followed suit and headed out the door with his family to make noise and express his gratitude during the unfolding Covid-19 chaos.
The Premier League’s leading goalscorer looked happy when he encouraged his young children to join in, while an older family member yelled ‘NHS’ out loud.
The Clap For Carers campaign, which started online, was organized because “in these unprecedented times, they need to know that we are thankful,” said the organizers.
It follows similar moves in Italy and Spain – which have the world’s highest death toll – who created amazing scenes earlier this month when they applauded from terraces in the cities of the countries.

Ruth May, NHS Chief Nursing Officer, said she appreciated the national salute planned to honor NHS employees.
Ms. May said, “Our caregivers’ nurses and midwives work around the clock. They work so hard. And I want to thank them very much.
She said she felt “very humble, very proud,” and that a blow to our caregivers will mean so much to all of our NHS employees and social care teams. Thank you. I can appreciate.’
