Manchester United player, Marcus Rashford set to receive honorary doctorate by University of Manchester.

Manchester United forward, Marcus Rashford is set to receive an honorary doctorate for his poverty campaign during the lockdown, Skysports revealed.


Reacting to the news, Rashford said: "It's a proud day for myself and my family. When you look at the great names that have been awarded this doctorate in the past, it's humbling.
We still have a long way to go in the fight to combat child poverty in this country but receiving recognition from your city means we are heading in the right direction and that means alot".

Marcus Rashford will be the youngest ever recipient of an honorary degree at 22. Sir. Alex Ferguson has been awarded with an honorary degree in past. 

The Vice Chancellor of the University of Manchester reacts, "Marcus is an extraordinary young man with an extraordinary talent and drive that stretches well beyond the football field.
His work for charity and his high profile campaign will not only help countless young people across our own city, but across the entire community. 
Our university has social responsibility at its core and this sense of civic pride and duty is something we are proud to share with Marcus. That's why the University is delighted to make Marcus our youngest ever recipient of an honorary degree."

During the strict lockdown in the UK, Rashford teamed up with Fareshare (a poverty and food waste charity) for a campaign and £20M was raised in financial and food donations. Read more on:Sky Sports
