MADL has raised over £14m to date with over 16,000 individual donations made to good causes across the UK. Last year saw 2,060 donations made, totalling over £1m and a record first quarter for donations.
MADL’s last financial year, which came to a close at the end of June 2021, saw a significant increase of 43% in the amount donated compared with the previous year, and a 31% uplift in the number of donations made.
Over the last year, MADL has supported retailers in building stronger local communities and developing relationships with good causes in their area through a number of initiatives. The charity has also actively grown its impact in several ways, such as through volunteering opportunities, providing funding for time-sensitive donations, and support to retailers in identifying local good causes most in need.
Furthermore, a number of additional income streams and fundraising opportunities have been introduced in the last 12 months to raise further funds for good causes across the UK.
