A new version of the anthem was released for the #OneMillionClaps Appeal, in order to raise much-needed funds for UK health workers.
The UK’s NHS Charities Together, which represents, supports and champions the work of the National Health Service’s official charities, has launched the #OneMillionClaps appeal to raise urgently-needed funds to support health workers, as they risk their lives amid the COVID-19 crisis. To help raise awareness, they are releasing a re-recorded version of Queen’s 1977 anthem, ‘We Will Rock You’, along with a short film voiced by comedian David Walliams.
Government spent over £6m to tell the British public to stay at home, and to protect the NHS, whilst the NHS are appealing for £5m that the Government won’t fund.
