ENGLAND star Marcus Rashford has sent a big-hearted youngster a PlayStation 5 for setting-up a food bank.
The Manchester United forward is currently preparing with his Three Lions team-mates for tomorrow’s Euro 2020 quarter-final with Ukraine.
However, despite being busy with Gareth Southgate’s side, the 23-year-old has still found time to surprise a young footy fan.
Rashford was awarded an MBE last year for his fantastic campaign to ensure free school meals for disadvantaged kids.
And it seems that eight-year-old Joshua, a huge Barrow AFC supporter, is someone cut from the same cloth as the striker.
He helped to set-up the ‘Barrow United’ foodbank initiative in 2020 in a scheme that enabled around 50 festive hampers to be given out to the local community for those who needed it most ahead of the festive period.
After all of his fine efforts, Joshua has now received a gift of his own.
Rashford surprised Joshua with a PS5 console and a personal letter from the United star.
Joshua said: “I just want to say a massive thank you to Marcus Rashford.
“I am so happy I am just lost for words! It’s an amazing gesture and I couldn’t believe it when I found out – I am over the moon.
“Me and my family will all be watching on Saturday and cheering extra loud for Marcus and the boys against Ukraine.”
Rashford then replied yesterday on Twitter, saying: “Good lad Joshua. Nothing less than he deserves. Kindness is power.”
Craig Rutherford, from Barrow FC’s Community Trust, said: “We have all been completely blown away by Joshua’s maturity and empathy towards people who may be in need.
“We’re really happy to have helped him bring his idea to life and we all agree he’s a credit to his parents and his school.”
