Banner Adverts on The Marple Website raise £500 for Friends of the Park
« Reply #1 on: April 13, 2015, 06:49:55 AM »
The Marple Website - "The First and Best Community web site for Marple in Stockport" is delighted to make a donation of £500 to Friends of Marple Memorial Park from the banner advertising income on The Marple Website, the Marple Community Forum and the Virtual History Tour of Marple for 2014-15. This has been possible due to the excellent support of the local businesses who pay for low cost advertising on these sites.

The original purpose of the banner adverts on the sites was to generate income to cover running costs. This has been quite successful in recent years and has allowed some of the income to be donated to local causes. In 2011 £1,000 was donated to Friends of Marple Memorial Park for their Diamond Jubilee Project. In 2012 The Marple Website became the main sponsor of the Marple Christmas Cracker with a donation of £1,000 to Marple Business Forum. £500 was donated to the Skate Park Project in 2013 - this was matched by Forever Manchester, effectively doubling our our money - and in 2014 a further £1,000 was donated to the Skatepark Community Match Funding.

The 2015 donation takes the banner advert contributions over the last 5 years to £4,000 and the overall total donated to local causes by The Marple Website since 2006 to £8,700!.
