Marcus Rashford shows Tories what compassion is

Share

Marcus Rashford and his mum gave a helping hand at a food bank after Tories voted against his plea to provide free meals for students through the holidays.

The Man Utd striker, 22, has told how mum Melanie relied on free meals and did 14-hour shifts to feed him and his four siblings

 

Rashford helped the foodbank volunteers shift boxes of supplies after Tory MPs rejected his bid to feed 1.4 million hungry children.

Accompanied by his mum, the footballer visited a new FareShare warehouse named in her honour, which will allow the charity to treble the quantities of food it gives out.

Rashford, 22, said: “The real superstars in this country can be found in the heart of most cities, towns and villages, working tirelessly to support our most vulnerable across the UK.

“As FareShare and other food-related charities approach one of the toughest winters on record, with demand higher than ever before, it is important that I lend my support wherever it is needed.

“When we stumble, there will always be a community to pick us back up. For many of us, that is the local food bank.
