If you have spare items in the cupboard, or are in a position to donate some items to help local families in need, your support will be welcomed by the local Food Bank and organisations that help feed families in need.
Here’s how you can do it:
Donate long life foods at Newton-le-Willows library, St John’s Church and Cross Lane Church.
Donate food and supplies to Newton Community Fridge at Newton Deli – items such as milk, cereals and bread.
Place food in the food bank collection trolley in Tesco, Earlestown.
Collections are often held at Newton Community Centre, Park Road South. The next one will be on Tuesday, 17 November from 10am – 12.30pm.
