Press release from: Tops Day Nurseries
Tops Day Nurseries has supported a colleague’s Just Giving efforts for chosen charity, Corpal, with a donation to help increase awareness of Complete Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum (ACC). Director of Early Years Quality Operations, Diane Wycherley, is taking part in several running events, including the Southsea Park run, to raise funds for and increase awareness of this condition which is a condition her friend and colleague’s son suffers from.
At Tops Day Nurseries, we are proud to support each other and act as a support network for our colleagues. Diane Wycherley is a prime example of this.
As well as Diane’s efforts to raise awareness of ACC, Tops Day Nurseries are also supporting Sebastian by giving a generous donation to the very small charity ‘Corpal’, who are the only charity in the UK that support those with ACC.
This donation includes contributions from staff cross Tops Day Nurseries who choose to contribute monthly to the Tops Employee Trust. This trust was set up to aid colleagues struggling through hardship, regardless of the reason why and a way for colleagues to support each other, and the community. This is part of the Tops support network and has proven very beneficial to colleagues.
Cheryl Hadland, Managing Director of Tops Day Nurseries and Aspire Training Team said, “I’m very proud that our company Trust, which combines donations from Tops and Aspire, and from individual staff, has been able to contribute to the Corpal charity, thereby honouring the concept of valuing and celebrating those who achieve their goals, whatever they might be”.

About Tops Day Nurseries:
Tops Day Nurseries are a family of eco-sustainable day nurseries across the South & South West. Tops have an outstanding reputation in delivering top quality early years education, operating nurseries and out-of-school clubs across Dorset, Hampshire, Devon, Somerset and Wiltshire.
We believe in an environmentally sustainable and socially responsible world for all. We aim to achieve this through educating the children of today, so that they can prosper and, in turn, influence the way future generations live.
Every 15 minutes is important because time is valuable. We offer flexible childcare, so parents and carers only pay for the time they need. With extended opening hours, from 6am-8pm including bank holidays*, it means we are here when families need us. We also provide free settling-in sessions, and we offer a variety of funding options.
As an environmentally conscious business, Tops Day Nurseries are always looking for ways to care for the planet in everything they do. All nurseries are rigorously reviewed to ensure the carbon footprint is minimised, as well as having integrated learning sessions for children about caring for the environment, growing their own food and reducing waste.
