Join us for our 5th charity campaign in partnership with the fantastic team at Matalan - this time we’re reaching for the stars!
At the forefront of this year’s campaign is TV personality and presenter, Scarlett Moffatt, who is encouraging everyone across the UK to get involved and show support for Alder Hey Childrens Charity. In just four years, Matalan has helped Alder Hey to raise a grand total of £2.1m and we are really excited to see what this year’s campaign can achieve.
The main aim of the campaign is to focus on all of our superstars; from the staff that do amazing work day in day out, to our extremely brave patients and their families. The five points of the stars also aptly symbolise the fifth year of this fantastic campaign partnership.
To celebrate the amazing work of everyone at Alder Hey, as well as raising awareness of the cause and showcasing the bravery of each and every one of our patients, we are so pleased to announce our brand-new Alder Hey charity single. Matalan employees and patients of the hospital join-together to sing their own version of the classic, best-loved S Club 7 song: ‘Reach for the Stars’. The song’s positive message and upbeat rhythm makes it the perfect soundtrack for the campaign, with the lyrics really resounding to everyone involved. What’s more, all profits from downloads go straight to Alder Hey Childrens Charity and will be used to fund a range of activities and projects designed to improve the lives of our patients.
It’s no secret that every single listener of the soundtrack can’t help but sing along to the well-known catchy song, sung fantastically by our amazing Alder hey team and led by our very own superstar – Grace Lee. Listen to Reach for the Stars here and don’t forget to download your very own copy so that you can donate and sing along at the same time!
