Manchester United striker, Marcus Rashford has received a special recognition award in honour of the charity work he did amid the coronavirus pandemic. He received the award from the High Sheriff of Greater Manchester for outstanding activity and contribution to the community. He is helping to feed 2.8 million children a week who would be struggling to eat during the pandemic.
The English footballer took to his Twitter account to react to the honour.
‘‘Wouldn’t normally share these types of things but this certificate is not just for me, it belongs to you all. Each and every one of you that has contributed the few £s you can, you’ve all made a huge difference 2.8million children a week are receiving meals they otherwise wouldn’t have during this lockdown because of YOUR help. I couldn’t have done any of this without the help of you all and Fareshare.”
He continued, “To be recognized by my city is a great feeling. From being young I knew that if I ever got in a position that I could help I would and I’m so proud of what we’ve achieved so far. Thank you all, you’re all superstars And we won’t stop until children and their parents no longer have to worry about where their next meal is coming from. I appreciate you all, thank you to the High Sheriff of Greater Manchester.”
