Marcus Rashford to receive honorary doctorate for campaigning against child poverty

Marcus Rashford is set to become the youngest recipient of an honorary doctorate from the University of Manchester for his campaign to help needy children, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.

Rashford for school food vouchers to be provided over the summer holidays in Britain, revealing that he had relied on such support as a boy. He received wide praise for the same.

“Marcus is an extraordinary young man with an extraordinary talent and drive that stretches well beyond the football field,” said Prof. Nancy Rothwell, president and vice chancellor of the University of Manchester.

“His work for charity and his high-profile campaign will not only help countless young people across our own city, but across the entire country.”

The 22-year-old will join club greats Alex Ferguson and Bobby Charlton in receiving the honorary doctorate, the highest honour the university bestows.

“It’s a proud day for myself and my family. When you look at the great names that have been awarded this doctorate in the past, it’s humbling,” Rashford told United’s website.

“We still have a long way to go in the fight to combat child poverty in this country but receiving recognition from your city means we’re heading in the right direction… that means a lot.”
