Middleton business gives back and urges others to join them

Date published: 09 June 2022

A Middleton business – Leaflet Drop Marketing (LDM) – has made it their mission to give back to the local community.

When the pandemic hit, managing director Rob Henry and the team at LDM, a marketing business founded over ten years ago, knew they needed to help in any way that they could.

LDM started by providing delivery of food and essential items to the vulnerable who were shielding as well as collecting and donating items to be distributed for those in need.

More recently, LDM has also donated funds to the Ukrainian relief appeal for every campaign they had booked in over March and April, as well as other members of the team fundraising for the homeless.

Mr Henry said: “When Covid struck, like many other businesses, we felt the impact, but it’s also changed our mindset completely as a business; we were struck with this feeling that we needed to do more to help.

“From then on, myself and the team decided that we wanted to give back more. We supported our local charities with fundraising, we donated Christmas presents to young people who otherwise would not have had any and we offered leaflet distributions free of charge to help certain causes.”

Further to this, LDM has committed to planting 250 trees for every one million leaflets they deliver in order to be environmentally friendly, as well as offsetting all their carbon emissions.

Sean Thomas, LDM’s second director, added: “We’re looking ahead now at what we can do to help those affected by the cost-of-living increase; we’re hearing about and seeing poverty increasing, families struggling to cope.

“We’re not the biggest business in the world but we want to help. Those who can help need to do so.

“We’d love to partner with any other businesses who want to work with us on our mission to give back, to together make a difference.”

LDM started by helping local companies market themselves and grow, now works with local and national businesses all over the UK and has offices both locally and in London.

Any businesses wishing to partner with LDM should get in touch via enquiries@ldmuk.co.uk.
