Welcome to the Marple Website
The Marple Website

Open Gardens in Marple is seeking sponsors!

The second Open Gardens in Marple will take place this year on 8th & 9th of July

It is a community event designed to raise money for Cancer Research UK, a charity close to many people’s hearts.

In order to gain maximum benefit for CRUK, we aim to keep our costs as low as possible and are therefore seeking sponsorship. Banners, for example, are a particular expense, but are essential to our publicity as they will be prominently displayed throughout Marple. However, they will also be advertising our major sponsors by carrying their logos too, and that could be you!

In 2018 all sponsors, both large and small, were acknowledged and thanked on these pages and on social media. Where appropriate, free banners adverts are included on these pages just like the ones you can see for the web site and for Lentils and Lather above.

Check out the Charity & Supporters page for more about Cancer Research UK and sponsors onboard already.
