The new John Lewis Christmas advert has arrived and signalled the start of the festive season – this year the iconic department store has captured our hearts and imaginations with the ‘Man on the Moon’.
John Lewis have collaborated with Age UK this year, and Esther Jackson, Marketing and Fundraising Director at Age UK said,
“This is a really exciting collaboration and coming together like this is a brilliant opportunity to raise awareness of the issue of loneliness at Christmas time in a powerful, heart-warming way. We hope it will really strike a chord with the Nation – driving not only awareness, but donations and actions to help some of the million older people who go for a month without speaking to anyone.”
To celebrate its release, we’re looking back at some of the best Christmas adverts from the last five years. Some tug on our heartstrings, while others remind us of the magic of Christmas.
