Matalan and Alder Hey Children's Charity have teamed up once again to launch a new Christmas campaign, #GetSpotted.

Celebs for Matalan Matalan launches its exciting annual Christmas collaboration with Alder Hey Children’s Charity. The campaign follows three successive years, which has seen hundreds of A-list supporters, from Justin Bieber to Dame Helen Mirren, getting involved and over £1.7million to support vital research at Alder Hey. As part of the brand campaign, Matalan has launched a range of pyjamas with a spot print and the Alder Hey mascot, Oli the elephant, with 100 percent of the profits going to the charity. The brand is also inviting people to upload pictures in their PJs and show off their hidden talents to the brand website.
