Meanwhile, Annemarie Plas, the founder of the weekly Clap for Carers thinks it has become too politicised and should stop.
Ms Plas said: ‘I think it’s good to have the last of the series next Thursday, because to have the most impact I think it is good to stop it at its peak.
‘Without getting too political, I share some of the opinions that some people have about it becoming politicised.
‘I think the narrative is starting to change and I don’t want the clap to be negative.’
