Topps continues support for charity partner with upcoming events

Tile retail specialist Topps Tiles has pledged its support to charity partner Alzheimer’s Society through a number of fundraising activities.

These include the ‘Tour de Topps’ and a charity skydive where the retailer, which operates across more than 300 stores across the UK, is aiming to raise over £12,000.

The 2022 Tour de Topps 65 for 65 event will see colleagues from around the business run, walk or cycle more than 6,000 miles over a two-week period during September as part of its annual Tour de Topps event which takes place every year to raise all-important funds for their charity partner.

This year their colleagues have pledged 65 miles and £65 each to take part in the Tour de Topps, with the hopes of generating a grand total of £7,000, helping Alzheimer’s Society support people affected by dementia through some of the hardest and most frightening times, 65 is the average age a person is diagnosed with Dementia.

In addition, an intrepid team of 10 colleagues from Topps Tiles’ retail team in the Northwest will have their heads in the clouds as they take part in a fund-raising skydive on 24 September 2022, hoping to raise £5,000.

These follow its recent 26-mile trek in the Peak District during August 2022 with12 colleagues based at the Topps Tiles Support Office in Leicester taking part.

Linda Sleath, Group HR Director at Topps Tiles, said: “Our colleagues are an active and engaged team who love a good fundraising challenge for our fantastic charity partner, Alzheimer’s Society. We’ve all been moved by the work they do in supporting those affected by dementia, so everyone has been proud to get involved and help make a difference. These latest fundraising events are a great way to really fuel the first full year of our five-year partnership with Alzheimer’s Society and our £1m target over the five years.”

Georgie Davies from the Fundraising Team at Alzheimer’s Society commented: “We’re delighted with the brilliant fundraising efforts of Topps Tiles. Someone develops dementia every three minutes and the money raised by Topps Tiles colleagues will enable us to provide support for families affected by dementia when they need it most. It’s fantastic to see the team at Topps Tiles really going above and beyond in their support of Alzheimer’s Society”

Alzheimer’s Society has been Topps Tiles’ charity partner since December 2021 when they were voted as the charity of choice by its colleagues. They are the UK’s leading dementia charity and are a vital source of support and a powerful force for change for everyone affected by dementia.
