A Melksham DJ has been streaming the weekly #ClapForHeroes live on Facebook and Twitch for all to see.

Darren Carey, 41, has streamed the weekly show of respect first from Melksham Fire Station, then Sainbury’s in Melksham (pictured), Wiltshire Ambulance and this week made his way to ASDA.

The live video Darren took of Sainbury’s staff and customers clapping for the NHS and key workers have now been viewed on Facebook more than 3,000 times.

He thanked the manager at staff at the Sainbury’s in Melksham for taking part in the clap and said they are ‘doing an amazing job’ keeping the supermarket open.

The local DJ has also been streaming live DJ sets to help people stay entertained during UK-wide lockdown.

He said: “People can’t get out on a Friday or Saturday night, so they just tune in and have a drink at home.

“It’s so they’ve got something to listen to, they can request a song that they want and if they want to say happy birthday to someone they can.”

The streams have seen as many as 500 people from as far out as London, tune in to hear everything from 80s bangers to Darren’s own remixes.

Darren was streaming his sets online every night from 6pm-9pm, but now mainly streams on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

“I will go back up to every day of the week,” Darren said.
