‘Tonight I didn’t just want to be cameraman’: Victoria Beckham joins her family in video from their Cotswold home to clap for the NHS staff and other key workers fighting COVID-19

They have been joining in with the weekly campaign to thank the NHS and other key workers for their hard work amid the coronavirus pandemic.

And The Beckham family once again showed their support as they proudly clapped on the doorstep of their Cotswolds home in an Instagram video shared on Thursday.

In the heartwarming clip, the group could be seen flashing warm smiles as Victoria, 45, David, 44, and their children Romeo, 17, Cruz, 14, and Harper, eight showed their appreciation for those helping fight the COVID-19 virus.

Former footballer David grinned broadly as he kneeled at the centre of the video surrounded by his wife and children.

Captioning the clip, he wrote: ‘Managed to set the phone up this week to get the whole family showing our appreciation for all the frontline workers and our brilliant NHS.

‘Thank you for another week of hard work.’ 

While Victoria also shared the same video on her stories and revealed she was glad to be part of the clap as she acted as cameraman last week.

She wrote: ‘Tonight I didn’t just want to be cameraman. Strategic placement on the pot plant worked well.

‘#ThankYouThursday to all the people on the frontlines, we can’t thank you enough. x.’

The Beckhams joined were among several celebrities who took to their doorsteps to clap on Thursday including Declan Donnelly, Katie Price, Ryan Thomas, Lucy Mecklenburgh and Brian May.  

For the past two weeks, NHS workers have been the recipients of the cheers and claps from the nation.

But last week the event, organised by the Clap For Our Carers campaign, was expanded to include all key workers, such as supermarket staff, the emergency services and teachers who are continuing to work.

It comes as an urgent new appeal was launched tonight in an attempt to raise millions of pounds to support NHS nurses, doctors, staff and volunteers.

NHS Charities Together hopes the #OneMillionClaps campaign will raise at least £5million.

The appeal will be promoted with a short film voiced by David Walliams and featuring NHS staff and people from across the UK.

#OneMillionClaps is part of National COVID-19 URGENT APPEAL, which was launched two weeks ago by NHS Charities Together – the official umbrella organisation for NHS charities.

The appeal asks people to donate £5 by texting the word ‘CLAP’ followed by any messages of support to 70507.

Each £5 donation will be used to provide a range of supplies and support for NHS staff and volunteers- including food, travel, accommodation and counselling. Individual messages of support will be also forwarded to local NHS charities and sent to the donors’ local hospital.

The goal is to inspire at least a million people to donate £5 – meaning more than £5million will be raised for NHS staff in just one evening.

Ellie Orton, Chief Executive of NHS Charities Together said: ‘Every single penny raised for nurses, doctors and NHS staff in this way will go to help those health service workers who are working so hard and risking so much to help us.

‘Thousands of staff are risking their lives every day for us and many of them are now sick themselves or at breaking point.

‘I really hope #OneMillionClaps inspires those who can to give a donation that will make a real difference to the amazing staff and volunteers who are daily saving lives and battling against this horribly virus on our behalf.

‘If we can raise £5 million tonight, it will go a long way to providing them and their families with the support they so desperately need.’
