Newcastle Primark to stock limited Girls Aloud pyjamas for cancer charities

All proceeds from the nightwear range will be donated.

The members of Girls Aloud - which includes Newcastle’s Cheryl Tweedy, have designed a nightwear range with Primark for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in honour of their late bandmate, Sarah Harding.

In an Instagram post from Cheryl, she explains that the band promised Sarah that they would fulfil her wish of raising money for vital research into breast cancer, and why it affects young women with no genetic history of it.

Her caption reads: “Before Sarah passed away, we promised her we would fulfil her wish of raising money for vital research to help determine young women between the ages of 29 and 40 who could be at risk of breast cancer with no genetic history. These pyjamas with Primark will raise a significant amount of money to help us achieve our promise to her.”

The proceeds from the nightwear range will be equally split between The Christie Charity and Cancer Research UK. 

The range includes a pyjama shirt and trouser set and a nightie, both blue with a celestial star pattern. They will be available to buy in Primark stores from tomorrow.

Newcastle is home to a flagship Primark store, located on Northumberland Street, with a large nightwear section - where the Girls Aloud designed pyjamas will be found.

Since Sarah’s death, the members of Girls Aloud (usually led by Cheryl), have been continuously raising awareness and money for cancer in honour of Sarah in various ways, such as taking part in a Race For Life.

On October 8, a special gala event for Sarah named Sarah’s Primrose Ball will be held to continue their mission of raising money and awareness.
