Manchester United star Marcus Rashford received a Special Recognition Award for his charitable work, by Greater Manchester’s high sheriff.
Raising almost £ 20 million for FareShare, a charity that aims to reduce hunger and restrict food waste, Rashford has made effective use of his recent spare time. He’d initially targeted donations worth £ 100,000.
Eamonn O’Neal, Greater Manchester’s high sheriff, due to his successes, gave the England star a certificate. He got attracted to such activities.
Posting on Twitter, Rashford said: “These kinds of things wouldn’t usually be shared but this award is not only for me, it belongs to all of you.”
“Anyone of you who has donated the least pounds you can, you’ve all made a big impact-2.8 million children a week are having food they wouldn’t normally get through this lockout because of YOUR assistance.”
“Without the support of you all and @fareshare, I could have achieved none of this. It’s a great feeling to be recognized by my city.”
