Topman: Rock your shadesTuesday, 05 April 2011
Topman is supporting Teenage Cancer Trust’s ‘Rock Your Shades’ with four exclusive designs
of sunglasses. The Rock Your Shades day on May 6th is set up to raise funds and increase awareness for the charity. Each style has been designed with the input of young cancer patients who were treated in a Teenage Cancer Trust unit. The styles feature doodles, the former patients initials and drawings of objects that hold a special personal meaning to each individual involved in the design process.
“At Teenage Cancer Trust we are thrilled to be working with Topman to raise awareness and vital funds for young people with cancer. Topman have come on board as supporters for the next three years, the difference they can make will be huge,” says Simon Davies, CEO Teenage Cancer Trust.
Every day six young people in the UK are told they have cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust units have a home-from-home atmosphere to create a sense of normality. The units are bright and vibrant and will often include things like pool tables, jukeboxes, games consoles, computers and webcams, to ensure they can keep in touch with family friends outside hospital.
The Topman sunglasses for Teenage Cancer Trust’s ‘Rock Your Shades’ can be purchased from all Topman stores and online at topman.com from 16th April and will cost £16 each, with £5 of every pair sold donated to the charity.
