Banner Adverts raise another £1,000 for Marple Skatepark Project
« Reply #1 on: April 08, 2016, 10:31:00 AM »
I'm delighted to make a donation of £1,000 to Marple Skatepark Development Project from the banner advertising income on The Marple Website, the Marple Community Forum and the Virtual History Tour of Marple for 2015-16. 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 most 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.
was donated to the Skate Park Project in 2013 - this was matched by Forever Manchester, effectively doubling our our money.
In 2014 a further £1,000 was donated to the Skatepark Community Match Funding.
In 2015 £500 was donated to Friends of Marple Memorial Park and £350 spent on sponsoring Marple Athletic JFC Under 12s for the 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons.

The 2016 donation takes the banner advert contributions over the last 6 years to £5,350 and the overall total donated to local causes by The Marple Website since 2006 to £10,050!

That's an average of £1,000 a year for the last 10 years! How many other community web sites do that?

Take a look here if you would like to support The Marple Website and local causes while promoting your business at very low cost!
