LONDON, April 27, 2011 - Topman is proud to announce it is producing four exclusive designs of
sunglasses to help raise much needed funds and increase awareness for the
Teenage Cancer Trust and the charity's Rock Your Shades day on Friday 6th

Simon Davies, CEO at Teenage Cancer Trust said: "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."

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 four 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 70's
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.

Every day six young people in the UK are told they have cancer. Usually
placed on a children's ward or with elderly patients, young people often feel
extremely isolated when facing a cancer diagnosis, never meeting another
young person going through the same thing. Teenage Cancer Trust believes
teenagers shouldn't stop being teenagers because they have cancer, so it
funds and builds specialist units in NHS hospitals that allow young people to
be treated together with others their own age, in an environment suited to
their needs.

Teenage Cancer Trust units aren't like ordinary cancer wards. Its
home-from-home atmosphere helps create a sense of normality. The
state-of-the-art units are bright and vibrant and will often include things
like pool tables, jukeboxes, games consoles, computers and webcams, ensuring
they can keep in touch with family friends outside hospital.

The exclusive Topman sunglasses for Teenage Cancer Trust's Rock Your
Shades can be purchased from all Topman stores and online at and
will cost GBP16 each, with GBP5 of every pair sold donated to the charity.
