Southeastern Trains will Toot the horns on their trains to take part in the Clap for Carers today Thursday 23th April.
Drivers will first do one long toot along with eight shorter ones, spelling N H S out in Morse Code.
It’s planned for up to 50 trains to take part in London, Kent and East Sussex areas, with the best places for listening to the toots being Victoria, Cannon Street, Charing Cross, Hayes and Tonbridge station and depots in Slade Green, Ramsgate, Gillingham, St Leonards-On-Sea and Ashford.
Anyone who is nearby is encouraged, where safe to do so, to share the toots on social media with hashtag #TootforCarers.
What did the officials say?
David Statham, Managing Director of Southeastern Trains, said
“We’ll be tooting for carers this Thursday evening to show our continued support to all those working for the NHS and in care roles. At Southeastern, we are immensely proud to play a part in keeping the country connected, so that those keeping us all safe can continue doing extraordinary work.
“Every day, our colleagues – from platform staff to train drivers – are inspired by the incredible work of those using our network. Our toot salute symbolises our immense thanks and praise.”
