Yorkshire Evening Post readers are being urged to put their first aid knowledge to the test.

We have teamed up with St John Ambulance to give away dozens of free first aid kits as part of our First Aid For All campaign.

Over the last two weeks dozens of readers have entered our Twitter competition by answering a special first aid question on the social networking website.

The packs come complete with bandages, emergency burn kits, sterile cleansing wipes and plasters.

The YEP will tweet the next question tomorrow and the first 20 correct entries will bag themselves a kit.

Hundreds of readers have already shown their support for the campaign by attending one of our special three-hour first aid courses.

The special courses help to give readers the basic skills to be the difference between life and death in an emergency.

Our campaign aims to teach basic lifesaving skills to 500 people in the city and we are well over half-way to reaching our target.

Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls recently backed our campaign by hosting a special first aid course in Morley.

And Leeds’s First Direct Arena also turned its lights green in support of our campaign.

Andrew Feely, St John Ambulance district manager, said: “The reaction to the Yorkshire Evening Post’s campaign has been really positive.

“We are looking forward to taking the campaign that one step further.”

* Last week we asked readers: True or false - chest pain, breathlessness and sweating but cold skin are all heart attack signs? The answer is true.
