We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, Marcus Rashford is nothing short of. a hero.
It’s tough to comprehend both the scale and importance of the work he’s done over the last year in helping feed the country’s most vulnerable.
A new documentary is due to air tonight on BBC at 7pm, documenting his campaign to end child food poverty in the UK, which has included forcing the government into multiple U-turns over their school meal voucher policies.
“It should never be normal for somebody to feel how I felt,” Rashford lays out in the trailer.
“If they’re in need, they don’t have anyone fighting for them, I should be the one that does it.”
Rashford was awarded the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Expert Panel Award last night for his philanthropic efforts, where he spoke further about the motivation behind his work off the pitch.
