Marcus Rashford MBE has launched a book cluv for children so that they can experience the escapism of reading.
Marcus Rashford is the gift that keeps on giving this year, as not long after his campaign to get free school meals out to the children and families who can not afford it in these tough times, he has launched a book club for children as well. "I only started reading at 17 and it completely changed my outlook and mentality. I just wish i was offered the opportunity to really engage with reading more as a child, but books were never a thing we could budget for as a family when we needed to put food on the table" says Rashford.
The aim of the book club is to offer children the chance to experience the escapism that reading can bring and he goes on to say "There were times whetre the escapism of reading could have really helped me. I want this escapism for all children, not just those who can afford it".
This young man is a credit to everyone and an incredible role model, dedicated to everything that he turns his hand to and sets his mind to. He is so dedicated to this cause he even proceeds to say "My books are, and always will be, for every child, even if I have to deliver them myself, we will reach them".
