Marcus Rashford Receive Special Award For Coronavirus Charity Work

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has been one of the most active players in helping out in the community and has received a recognition award from the High Sheriff of Greater Manchester, Eamonn O'Neal.

The Manchester United star has been involved in charity work amid the coronavirus crisis and has helped raise close to £20million for FareShare, a charity which helps fight hunger and food waste.

As a reward for his work, O'Neal sent Rashford a special certificate, which the 22-year-old shared on social media.

The England international posted a picture of the certificate on Twitter along with the message: “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

“To be recognised 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.”

The certificate read: ‘To Marcus Rashford, for outstanding activity and contribution to the community.'
