Manchester United and England forward Marcus Rashford has vowed to continue the fight to support vulnerable children after being made an MBE.
The 2020 Queen’s Birthday Honours list was due to be published in June, but was pushed back to enable nominations for people playing crucial roles during the first months of the crisis.
Rashford, 22, launched a high-profile campaign which resulted in the Government changing policy over its free school meals vouchers during lockdown, helping ensure children in need did not go hungry during the summer break.
The England forward has maintained his drive for social change by since forming a child food poverty task force, which has linked up with some of the UK’s biggest supermarkets and food brands.
Reflecting on his ‘humbling’ MBE, Rashford vowed to continue fighting to protect the most vulnerable children.
