Talking about his partnership with Burberry Rashford said ‘Far too many children do not currently have access to books, typically because of financial restraints. There is a need to inspire them and allow them to see beyond the challenges they face daily. These children need the escapism of reading more than most and access to books should not be restricted by the area you grow up in.

Marcus continued “I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved here, building upon the work of the Marcus Rashford Book Club and I hope children will feel the benefit of these spaces for years to come.

“This has been a really rewarding process and I’m thankful to Burberry for continuing to stand with me on this journey to better underserved communities and offer real opportunity.”

The British fashion house also has plans to roll out similar campaigns in the US and Asia. This will create new libraries that will provide books to underprivileged communities.
