From 2006 to 2010 The Marple Website was able to make donations ranging between £500 and £1,200 a year with a grand total of £4,700 from sales of our Marple calendars. Beneficiaries included the Iron Bridge Restoration Project, Friends of Memorial Park and Marple Locks Heritage Society, Memorial Park Infants Play Area, Find a Cure for Martha (Kidney Research) and New Horizons.

In 2012 The Marple Website became the main sponsor of the Marple Christmas Cracker with a donation of £1,000 to Marple Business Forum.
