Rashford is also a doubt for the weekend

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford starts book club to promote reading among children

According to the Evening Standard, Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has launched a book club.

The initiative has been made to promote reading and literacy among children from all socio-economic backgrounds. It will help bring about a positive change in the life of those affected.

“I only started reading at 17, and it completely changed my outlook and mentality.”

The 23-year-old has partnered with Macmillan Children’s Books (MCB) for the initiative. It will focus on getting books to children from underprivileged backgrounds.

Once again, Rashford has made use of his personal experience to ensure the children today have it better. The United star wishes he had the chance to read more as a child but his family had to adhere to a strict budget that prioritized food over books.

He is now keen to ensure that children today will be given an option he never had.

“There were times where the escapism of reading could have really helped me. I want this escapism for all children. Not just those that can afford it.”

According to the report, the first title of the partnership is ‘YOU ARE A CHAMPION: Unlock Your Potential, Find Your Voice And Be The Best You Can Be’. The illustrated non-fiction title aimed at young people aged between 11-16 will be published in May 2021.

A better tomorrow!

Each chapter in the book will begin with a story from Rashford’s own life. Furthermore, it will cover topics such as the value of education, positive mentality, understanding culture, and female role models.

Over 380,000 children across the UK have never owned a book. Rashford hopes his initiative will help change that. He is keen to ensure his initiative reached those in need and is willing to even go about doing it himself.

“My books are, and always will be, for every child, even if I have to deliver them myself. We will reach them.”
