Two Blackpool GP practices are appealing for food donations on behalf of a local charity.

Patients, public and staff are being invited to drop off donations of non-perishable tins or food and drink items at Adelaide Street Surgery and Harris Medical Centre.

The practices are aiming to collect as much as possible to pass onto the Salvation Army in readiness for their food parcel distribution at Christmas.

Practice Manager, Mike Wain said “We found that lots of people actively wanted to give donations to a food bank, but didn’t always know where to go. We are happy to act as a drop-off point for the Salvation Army and hope we can collect as many items of food as possible in the run-up to Christmas.”

The full address for Adelaide Street Surgery is 118 Adelaide St, Blackpool, FY1 4LN.

The full address for Harris Medical Centre is 25 Kentmere Dr, Blackpool, FY4 4TW.
