Keeping kids safe this summer

Families flying out on holiday this summer are getting special wristbands to help keep their children safe.

They are called Koolbands and the idea is that kids wear them during the holiday and parents can write their mobile numbers on them, so if they ever get lost mums and dads can be contacted.

The scheme is a being run by police and Bristol Airport, which expects 1.2 million people to pass through over the next few weeks.

Airport spokesperson Jacqui Mills told Heart more about the Koolbands

Famililes who have a wristband are being asked to make a £1 donation to the Weston Hospicecare.
