We hate to be that person BUT it is now officially nine weeks until Christmas. And this means talking about things festive is now totally acceptable (#sorrynotsorry).

Today’s Crimbo chat centres on high street stalwart Matalan and their amazing Christmas campaign. For the past two years Matalan have collaborated with Alder Hey Children’s Charity, and this year is no different.

Following on from the retailer’s previous Christmas fundraising appeals, Alphabet Scarves and Beanie vs Bobble, which raised more than £1.3m combined for the Liverpool children’s hospital, Matalan revealed today their ‘Get Your Stripes’ campaign.


This year’s stripe themed collection is all about celebrating family downtime over the christmas period (aka lying about in your pjs for marathon TV sessions), and includes a range of red, white and green striped pyjamas. The offering includes pyjamas sets for all the family (dogs and babies included) as well striped socks and mugs.  

Celebrity ambassadors Anna Friel, Alesha Dixon and George and Larry Lamb star in the campaign showing off the striped garms.


Best of all, 100% of profits from sales will go straight to the Alder Hey Children’s Charity, helping the charity to deliver life-changing research into childhood conditions like arthritis, cancer and diabetes

The collection drops today and prices start at a bargain £2. Grab yours here.
