Rashford handed cash from his car to help struggling kids and the homeless

Marcus Rashford’s desire to help others saw him handing out cash from his car to help struggling kids and the homeless.

The Manchester United star has come in for huge praise over recent months following his efforts to raise awareness around child food poverty.

He publicly challenged the Government which saw them perform a u-turn on their original decision to deny school meal vouchers.

Rashford has since been given an MBE and was named on the Queen’s Birthday Honours lists.

His brother Dwaine Maynard has also told WSJ Magazine about the footballer’s gestures that haven’t been spotted.

He claims that Rashford often used to drive around in his car handing out cash to kids or homeless people around Manchester.

Dwaine eventually advised his brother that they were more constructive ways he could help.

He told Rashford: “It’s actually not very safe for you to stop your car and do that.”

The United star’s continued efforts to end child poverty saw him engaged in dialect with the Government.

Earlier this year he praised the efforts of all those involved but claimed a review was needed into the school meal system.

He said: “Thanks to the efforts of individuals, businesses, charities, educators, and govt so many of our vulnerable children have been helped during this pandemic and we should be proud of what we have achieved so far. That being said, there is so much work to be done.

“This year has shown us how dangerous and life-altering many children’s access to food is and frankly too many children have been falling through the cracks, at risk of being seriously left behind.”

He added: “It’s 2021. Our eyes are open. Now is the time for a full major review of the free school meal system.”
