At the London Chamber of Commerce’s November ‘Biz After 5’, Chris and Mike were lucky enough to snap a picture with a special guest after donating 3 filled bags of food for the London Food Bank.


November 1, 2011

With our donation of $25,000 last year to the Children’s Health Foundation, we helped create a brand new exam room in the new wing of the Children’s Hospital! Recently, a private tour and dedication cermony was held on-site, with many dignitaries present.

We have also installed countertops in the new BMO Optimist Centre on Rectory Street in London. This new centre has soccer fields and an indoor walking track! With the donation of slabs from Hanwha and their HanStone product, the concessions, tables and sills have never looked better!


September 1, 2011

Two fun things we’ve been doing in the community lately.  Held on Saturday, August 27th, The Top Shop’s 3rd Annual Yard Sale and BBQ Fundraiser for the Children’s Health Foundation was great success!  With the big top white tent up and loads of stuff for sale, Top Shop staff volunteered their time once again.  Dr. Beary Goode also made a guest appearance to support this worthy event, giving hugs and spreading cheer to lucky patrons.  A special thanks to Jack from Art-A-Print Signs who created a banner with the Children’s Hospital logo to promote the yard sale and BBQ.  We raised almost $600 for the Children’s Hospital at this year’s yard sale.  Everything left over from the sale was brought to Goderich and donated to help with their Tornado relief efforts!

Secondly, some of you may recall we ran a silent auction in June to fundraise for the Children’s Hospital and one of the items up for auction was a 4 hour boat cruise complete with a wine and dine package.  Gerry and Lorraine Hensels were the lucky winners and enjoyed a wonderful boat cruise in August, compliments of David Dean & Linda Coates.


June 21, 2011

Another fundraiser for the LHSC, Linda did a fantastic job running a silent auction for the Children’s Hospital this month.  Total funds raised were $2,374!  Special thanks to all the enthusiastic bidders that turned out to support this very worthy cause.  As many of you already know, fundraising for the Children’s Hospital is an ongoing initiative at

The Top Shop and many staff volunteer their time and services throughout the year.


May 10, 2011

Astral’s National Day of Caring for Kids Radiothon was a resounding success and, through the continuous efforts of staff at The Top Shop, we have once again made a contribution for $8,000!  As many of you already know, the staff and president of The Top Shop share a commitment to fundraising for the Children’s Health Foundation.  Through the year Top Shop staff members lead initiatives to raise money and awareness of the Children’s Hospital and their needs.  The donation was delivered with a giant cheque-shaped cake on location at Victoria Hospital.  Special thanks to Linda Coates for her special contribution in hand-making one of the biggest cakes I’ve ever seen (see below)!

Funds raised will be used to purchase neonatal monitors, paediatric exam tables, and paediatric trauma beds.  Additional pictures and information can be found at:

We are proud to sponsor the young boys and girls from The East London Soccer Club this year.  We value the opportunity to support these young athletes and wish them well this coming season.  Below is a photo of the team we sponsored in 2010; just look at the smiles on those bright faces!


October 29, 2010

October 22nd was the date of our big cheque presentation.  We hit our special 25th anniversary fundraising goal two months early and presented a cheque for $25,000 to Jill Osborne on behalf of the Children’s Hospital.

At the presentation Mark Elliot, father of Tristen and benefactor of the Children’s Hospital services, shared the story of how his son was born without a functioning liver and the difficulties he and his wife faced while helplessly watching their suffering infant son.  He expressed his heartfelt appreciation for the services of the Children’s Hospital and explained how community supporters really do make a difference every day in the lives of needy children and families in the region.  The good news is Tristen is now a happy, healthy two year old and has had a new liver for a year now.  The intimacy and candour Mark used to tell his son’s story touched every one of us and made me realize how very rewarding it is to be involved in fundraising for the Children’s Hospital.

Thank you to all sponsors and fundraising efforts thus far, children all over Western Ontario will benefit from your generous donation of time and/or money. The gift will be presented to the CHF in December and we invite all partners to support us in this worthwhile goal.


March 2, 2010

As we celebrate our 25th year in business we realize how thankful we are for our community’s past and continued patronage. As such, we decided to give back to the community in a way that would be appreciated by Londoners and Southern Ontarians at large. We are very excited and pleased to announce that we’ve set a company fundraising goal of $25,000 to be raised by The Top Shop and staff over the course of 2010. A donation will be made to the Children’s Hospital in December of 2010 and we invite all partners to support us in this worthwhile community goal.
