“The NSPCC is still here for the children who need us – and we’re needed more than ever. More children are reaching out to Childline worried about the Coronavirus.

"As a family we are extremely proud to support the NSPCC and to have established the Hargreaves Centre, a safe place for vulnerable children and young people on Merseyside. Our relationship with this incredible charity dates back to 2004 when my dad John, the founder of Matalan started fundraising events on behalf of the NSPCC. We continue to raise as much money as possible for the charity, which can include a variety of head office or store fundraisers, mountain climbs or sales of NSPCC products. Together we’ve raised millions with the NSPCC and are proud to say that Matalan is established as their longest standing retail partner".
