STV’s Sean Batty has ditched his suit and tie in favour of an eye-catching new athleisure look to help launch the STV Children’s Appeal’s Big Scottish Breakfast campaign for 2022.

The weather presenter and star of Sean’s Scotland is donning his yoga pants as part of a drive to encourage fundraisers to get creative with a themed breakfast for this year’s campaign.

“I’m trying something different this year and going for a ‘yoghurt and yoga’ theme, but not everyone has to join me in the lotus position! How about enjoying a smoothie with a movie or some toast and table tennis? Regardless of the activity or brekkie treat, every penny raised will be a huge support to the many families in Scotland who are struggling during this particularly challenging time. Blockquote close

For the first time since before the Covid pandemic, the STV Children’s Appeal is inviting fundraisers to get together in person for this year’s Big Scottish Breakfast.

Natalie Wright, STV Children’s Appeal Campaign Manager, said: “As the cost of living continues to rise, this is a difficult and uncertain time for everyone – and it’s particularly troubling for the one in four children already living in poverty in Scotland.

“We work with projects across the length and breadth of the country to provide much-needed support to thousands of families and young people, and each Big Scottish Breakfast event – big or small – will make an enormous difference to those who need it most.”
