Congratulations and praise have been pouring in for Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford, who has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s honours list.

‘I’m incredibly honoured and humbled,’ Rashford said on his Instagram account.

‘As a young black man from Wythenshawe, never did I think I would be accepting an MBE, never mind an MBE at the age of 22.

‘This is a very special moment for myself and my family, but particularly my mum who is the real deserving recipient of the honour.’

‘I would be doing my community, and the families I have met and spoken with, an injustice if I didn’t use this opportunity to respectfully urge the Prime Minister, who recommended me for this honour, to support our children during the October half-term with an extension of the voucher scheme, as the furlough scheme comes to an end and we face increased unemployment.
‘Another sticking plaster, but one that will give the parents of millions of children in the UK just one less thing to worry about.
‘Let’s stand together in saying that no children in the UK should be going to bed hungry.’
One of the first to congratulate Rashford was David Beckham, who responded ‘Congratulations mate keep being that leader.’

MBE What Beckham and Sancho said to Rashford about his MBE I’m incredibly honoured and humbled. As a young black man from Wythenshawe, never did I think I would be accepting an MBE, never mind an MBE at the age of 22. This is a very special moment for myself and my family, but particularly my mum who is the real deserving recipient of the honour. The fight to protect our most vulnerable children is far from over. I would be doing my community, and the families I have met and spoken with, an injustice if I didn’t use this opportunity to respectfully urge the Prime Minister, who recommended me for this honour, to support our children during the October half term with an extension of the voucher scheme, as the furlough scheme comes to an end and we face increased unemployment. Another sticking plaster, but one that will give the parents of millions of children in the UK just one less thing to worry about. Let’s stand together in saying that no children in the UK should be going to bed hungry. As I have said many times before, no matter your feeling or opinion, not having access to food is NEVER the child’s fault.
