Topman Team Up With Teenage Cancer Trust
It is not often that we get to notify you all of ways retailers are giving back to the people, but today we bring you news of a great campaign by Topman in aid of the teenage cancer trust. Rock your shades day is this Friday, and in order to raise awareness and also to donate profits to a good cause. Topman are releasing 4 unique sunglasses styles which will be available to buy for £16 – of this £5 from each unit sold will be donated to the charity. A worthwhile cause I am sure you will all agree.
A lot of us have been touched or affected by cancer at some point in our lives; whether it be yourself or a family/friend who has been diagnosed. Right now in the UK 6 young people a day are diagnosed with a form of cancer. The teenage cancer trust recognises the fact that being told you have such a disease so young, shouldn’t stop you from trying to live a teenagers life. They fund and build specialist units inside NHS hospitals where young people are treated together with people their own age, so that it creates a feel of normality and also allows them to make friends with people going through similar experiences.
So not do these sunglasses come in bold retro prints that are perfect for spring/summer 2011, you will also be contributing to a charity that has changed a lot of young people’s lives for the better. See the full details and sunglasses range below…
About The Campaign
In support of Teenage Cancer Trust’s ‘Rock Your Shades’ day on Friday 6th May, Topman are proud to announce they are producing 4 exclusive designs of sunglasses to help raise much needed funds and increase awareness for the charity and the event itself.
“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.” Simon Davies, CEO Teenage Cancer Trust.
Each style has been designed with the input of young cancer patients who were treated in a Teenage Cancer Trust unit and feature doodles, the former patients initials and drawings of objects that hold a special personal meaning to each individual involved in the design process.
The 4 sunglasses are divided into two different styles. One, a 50’s retro style wayfarer shape available in black with an all over white graphic and white with a vivid multi-coloured all over graphic. The other, a 70s style clubmaster shape available with the same graphic design either in white with an all over print or in grey with an internal print only.
