Marcus Rashford sends eight-year-old fan a PS5 and ‘Thank You’ letter after he helped set up a food bank in his local community

Manchester United and England footballer, Marcus Rashford has sent a young fan a PlayStation 5 after the kid helped set up a food bank in his community.

Rashford was awarded an MBE last year for his fantastic campaign to ensure free school meals for disadvantaged kids.

Joshua, an 8 year old Barrow AFC supporter, helped to set-up the ‘Barrow United’ foodbank initiative in 2020.

The scheme enabled around 50 hampers to be given out to the local community for those who needed it most during the festive period.

After all of his efforts, Joshua has now been given a gift by Rashford.

Rashford surprised Joshua with a PS5 console and a personal letter from the United star.

Joshua took to social media to praise Rashford.

He wrote: “I just want to say a massive thank you to Marcus Rashford.

“I am so happy I am just lost for words! It’s an amazing gesture and I couldn’t believe it when I found out – I am over the moon.

“Me and my family will all be watching on Saturday and cheering extra loud for Marcus and the boys against Ukraine.”

Rashford then replied on Twitter, saying: “Good lad Joshua. Nothing less than he deserves. Kindness is power.”
