English footballer Marcus Rashford launches book club for children

Footballer Marcus Rashford has followed his free school meals campaign by launching a book club to provide children with a means of escape through reading.
The Manchester United and England star has teamed up with Macmillan Children's Books to promote reading and literacy.
The deal with the 23-year-old would see a large number of books being given away to children from vulnerable and under-privileged backgrounds.
The project will begin with an illustrated non-fiction book called YOU ARE A CHAMPION: Unlock Your Potential, Find Your Voice And Be The BEST You Can Be, which will be aimed at children aged 11-16, and published in May 2021.
Each chapter will start with a story from Rashford's own life and will cover such topics as the value of education, positive mentality, understanding culture, and female role models.
