North Yorkshire power station to light up blue for ‘Clap for Carers’

Employees at the UK’s largest power station will show their support and appreciation for the heroic efforts of those within the NHS during the Covid-19 crisis by turning one of Drax’s cooling towers blue at 8pm tonight (16 April), when the UK comes together to ‘Clap for Carers’.

Engineers at Drax Power Station, near Selby in North Yorkshire, have installed blue lighting on one of the 12, 114m tall cooling towers at the 1,850-acre site, in honour of the NHS.

We all know how vitally important the NHS is right now and we’re in awe of what the teams there are doing.
