One Day Strike for the National Health Service, Cambridge Street, Edinburgh

This week, inspired by this photograph, we’re celebrating heroes!

During these challenging times, every Thursday evening people come together to clap and make noise for important people such as nurses, doctors, carers and front-line workers, who are some of the many heroes of our society. Have you been joining in?!

This image is from photographer Iain Stewart’s project, ‘Picture of Health’, for which he followed his parents (both doctors) and took photos to record them at work.

This week’s activities include different ways for you to celebrate the heroes in YOUR life, whoever they may be.
