Marcus Rashford mural donations to be donated to charity

Just when you thought Marcus Rashford could not possibly go up in your estimates any longer, he went and did it again.

England and Manchester United’s forward-looking efforts to ensure that vulnerable children are fed have been documented recently, with a mural in his honor being subsequently unveiled near his former hometown of Withington.

Thanks @WithingtonWalls, @ Akse_P19, to Julie who started everything, and to everyone who promised a couple of pounds for the repair. After raising almost £ 40,000, these funds will now be donated to @FareShareGtrM which guarantees that we will reach more children in need this summer ♥ ️

While the majority of the British public can appreciate that a noble endeavor like it is far more important than a football game, unfortunately no idiot can get.

The aforementioned mural was vandalized after Rashford’s penalty miss in the Euro 2020 final against Italy, where locals immediately covered the vandal with messages of love and support for the Three Lions star.

A funding page was set up in the wake of the £ 40,000 event raised to ensure that the mural was fully repaired.

Of course, the money raised will far exceed the amount needed to repair the artwork, and Rashford himself has now taken to social media to request that the rest of the money be donated to a local food bank charity.

The funds will be donated to Fare Share Greater Manchester, a charity that aims to distribute food to schools, charities, community groups and vulnerable people throughout Greater Manchester.

After the mural was removed with swear words the night before England’s final defeat in Euro 2020, the police claimed that the vandalism was not racially motivated, while their search to find those responsible for the act is ongoing.

Regardless of the intentions of the thoughtless idiots, the money raised by those who donated to the funding side will now be used to feed underprivileged people in Greater Manchester.

The word “hero” is a lot in football today, but if a football player deserves the title, it is without a doubt Marcus Rashford.
