We are now helping St Helens Foodbank!

Newton Medical Practice is now a referral centre for the foodbank and anyone in the community in severe financial problems or in crisis can visit the practice to ask for a voucher to be referred to it.  

As well as being a referral centre, the practice is also a St Helens Foodbank repository and we have set up a collection point in our reception where anyone in the community can come a drop off food or other items for distribution to the foodbank. 

The following items are always needed at the foodbank:

UHT MILK

ORANGE JUICE (Long Life)

INSTANT COFFEE

TINNED VEGETABLES (NOT PEAS OR BEANS)

TINNED FRUIT
