Grenville Green and his wife, Helene Davies-Green, have been campaigning on behalf of the Madeleine Foundation.
The pressure group has repeatedly claimed Madeleine was not abducted and their leaflet presents evidence gathered by the Portuguese police about her disappearance.
The pensioners from Nuthall have also dropped leaflets in Rothley, Leicestershire, the village where the McCanns live.
Mrs Davies-Green said: "We're not trying to upset anyone or stir anything up, we just want people to look again at the case."
Leaflets about Kate and Gerry McCann posted in Rothley were taken down by neighbours.
Following the leaflet drop, Mr and Mrs McCann issued a statement through their spokesman, Clarence Mitchell, in which they said: "We do not wish to dignify the actions of the Madeleine Foundation with any response at all."*

Grenville said: "My wife and I have had a very good response wherever we've been. Most people appear to doubt the McCanns' version of events and have eagerly snapped up the booklet. I am amazed at the amount of government help that this couple has had, given that the Portuguese police had good grounds for making them suspects in the disappearance of their own daughter".
Biography: Grenville Green (59) was widowed and brought up three boys, including his Downs Syndrome son Stephen, on his own. He remarried in May last year and currently campaigns for carers' rights. In particular he is asking that the Carers' Allowance, paid by the government to full-time carers, should be increased to the same level as the national minimum wage.
