A pensioner and former boys bridge band captain is dusting off his bugle and decorating his garden to salute his daughter and other NHS workers.
Meopham resident Alan Forman will join thousands of others across Kent to show support for the NHS tonight.
The 75-year-old widower has decorated his garden with fallen petals to spell out a message of support to the health service from above.
His daughter Judith works at Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford and said her dad was keen to "add his voice to the thanks".
She said: "They used to do monthly parades at the Civic Centre and around the carpark behind Emmanuel baptist Church. This is where the Boys Brigade was run.
"He lives on his own since the death of my Mum 3 years ago. He is an active member of the local community."
The pensioner has unearthed his horn from the cupboard and will join his neighbours who are playing the bagpipes tonight and banging saucepans.
Judith added: "The video was of his first practice run a few days ago, that he sent to family. He tells me he has been practicing!"
Tonight's national "Clap For Our Carers" is taking place this evening at 8pm.
