Big hearted Marcus continues to pile on the pressure for the  UK Prime Minster Boris Johnson who he wants to listen and look after vulnerable children to ensure they have school meals all year round.

To kick off the campaign, Marcus has written an open-letter to his 10-year-old self, explaining how he benefited personally from the community and youth centres he was part of growing up and the impact they had on his life.

Vice President of Corporate Responsibility for Burberry, Ms Pam Batty said “We believe, especially now, it is so important to help them empower the emerging change-makers of tomorrow and continue their efforts to sustain and protect the vulnerable.”

During COVID-19, Burberry donated tens of thousands free PPE gear to front line workers while also switching up their factory operations in their Yorkshire factory to produce non-surgical gowns for medics and care workers.

The London fashion house have also financially contributed to FareShare, which is the charity chosen by Marcus to distribute food to the needy.
