Almost half of parents say that they worry about the first aid skills of the adults caring for their children when they go on a playdate or visit a friend’s house.

That’s according to new research released today by the British Red Cross and Elastoplast which saw a quarter of parents admit they would not feel confident giving first aid to other people’s children, with half saying they would only do so for a minor injury.

In Yorkshire:

  • 22% would not feel confident giving first aid to someone else's child
  • 51% say they would only feel confident giving minor first aid to someone else's child
  • 45% of parents say when their child goes on a play date they are concerned about the first aid skills of the adult caring for them
  • 11% of parents regularly refresh their first aid knowledge

Dr John Sentamu plans to pray one hour every hour from 6am to 6pm each day until next Sunday at York Minster. He said the vigil in St John's Chapel at the Minster, would show 'solidarity with the suffering people of our world, particularly in the Middle East.'

In 2006 the archbishop camped in the Minster for a similar peace vigil.

Dr Sentamu will sleep at the Minster during the vigil but said he would not take a tent this year to 'show solidarity with the homeless.' Throughout the prayers, the archbishop is encouraging people to have a white linen cloth at hand to serve as a reminder of peace.
