If there’s one way to bring your family together, surely it’s through matching pyjamas?
And your luck’s in, as Matalan have released a range of nightwear for every member of your clan – including the dog.
The clothing store have put the star-patterned PJs on sale just in time for the upcoming winter months, allowing you to stay warm and cosy with your family in style.
While you might not be able to imagine some of your nearest and dearest sporting the multi-coloured garments around the house, you can convince them to take part by telling him it’s all for a good cause.
100 per cent of the sales of the pyjamas will raise money for Alder Hey Children’s Charity, an organisation which supports Alder Hey in the Park hospital.
The Matalan website explains:
By purchasing products from the collection and sharing your snaps on social media, you will actively raise funds for Alder Hey Children’s Charity.
Proceeds from the campaign will fund a range of activities and projects, which are designed to enhance and improve the lives of Alder Hey patients.
Money raised will also be used to support research and purchase specialist medical equipment.
Gogglebox-turned-Saturday Night Takeaway star Scarlett Moffatt is leading the campaign, alongside the staff and patients at the hospital.
If the pyjamas aren’t for you, then you can always opt for starry socks or a duvet cover, or even just have your dog strut their stuff with a new colourful star-adorned coat.
The range of products are all delightfully affordable, with the children’s pyjamas costing only £8 while the adult sizes come in at £12. The canine coats start at £5, and the bedding starts at just £12.
It’s really not a big price to pay to look great and support a charity at the same time!
The clothes range from XS to XXL, and there are even little starry sleepsuits for babies up to 23 months old, so literally every member of your family can get involved and ‘#BeASuperStar’. It’d make an excellent family portrait!
The site description reads:
Shine bright this season and #BeASuperstar by getting involved in feel-good fun for all the family, in order to support Alder Hey Children’s Charity.
These dazzling unisex pyjamas are constructed in soft jersey fabric and feature a cream base finished with a vibrant star print.
With variations available for all family members including your four-legged friends, this sentimental sleepwear set is great for cosy nights in, lounging and gifting alike.
Many people have already been sharing snaps of their family and furry friends dressed to impress in the pyjamas, spreading awareness for the campaign with the caption #BeASuperStar2018.
