Londoners certainly know how to come together in a crisis and the coronavirus is no different. From helping vulnerable neighbours to delivering supplies to those self-isolating to volunteering to support the NHS, the city has shown great community spirit.
That’s why the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has launched the #LondonTogether campaign. He’s asking you all to share stories of kindness and generosity on social media using the hashtag to show that Londoners are united even though we’re physically apart, and to thank all the NHS staff, emergency services and key workers for their dedication.
As Sadiq has said, “From city-wide applause for carers and the NHS, to those delivering food parcels to neighbours, to the millions saving lives by staying home, Londoners are showing why this city is the best in the world. When times are rough we see the very best of our city, and these extraordinary acts of charity and empathy show that our sense of community is not confined by walls. These acts of kindness can make a big difference, and if we stay home, look after one another and follow the advice of the experts, we will beat this virus in London, together.”
