Our NSPCC pyjama set will add a bright pop of colour to their bedtime routine this Childhood Day on Friday 9th June! Plus, 100% of the profits from the sale of each product goes to the NSPCC to help protect children from abuse.

Help us be there for every child

Matalan and the NSPCC are committed to being here for children. Having been partners since 2004, Matalan are undertaking an amazing new fundraising goal - raising £1m over 3 years to change the lives of children in Merseyside and across the UK.

This money will help fund services working with children and families in Merseyside, as well as the lifesaving Childline service, giving children and young people in every community somewhere to turn.

Every penny you raise helps change the life of a child who needs support. Keep reading to find out how you can get involved and help us be there for every child.

Help us raise money for the NSPCC by donating your old clothes at selected Matalan stores. We’ll send them off for recycling, and 100% of the proceeds go to the NSPCC.

Half a million children a year suffer abuse in the UK. That means 7 children in a classroom experience abuse before they turn 18. For over 130 years, the NSPCC have been working to prevent child abuse, and we know the only way we can keep all children safe is if we work together. That’s why we created Childhood Day – a day that brings everyone in UK together to protect children. Whether you fundraise, donate, volunteer or take action, all we ask is that you play your part to help keep children safe.

You can make a difference

The NSPCC needs your support to make sure they can remain there for children at risk of abuse. You don’t need to take part in a challenge to make a donation. Every penny helps.

“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”.

Jason Hargreaves, Matalan CEO

“Matalan has been by our side for an entire childhood, ever since we first partnered eighteen years ago. That’s why we are especially thrilled to announce that they will continue advocating for our vital services by raising £1million over the next three years. Their fundraising efforts will support our Hargreaves Centre in Liverpool where we deliver therapeutic services for children and families. And through supporting our Childline service, Matalan will enable us to remain by every child’s side in every community across the UK, no matter what they need, no matter when they need it.”

Sir Peter Wanless, NSPCC Chief Executive
