Burberry had joined forces with English international footballer and youth advocate, Marcus Rashford MBE to help charities supporting young people across the world. In support of his efforts to end child food poverty, Burberry has donated to FareShare, which will fund over 200,000 meals distributed across 11,000 charities and community groups across the UK.
Burberry’s history of supporting its communities is rooted in the altruism of its founder Thomas Burberry – himself a young apprentice when he established his company aged just 21. Throughout his career, Thomas Burberry used his success as a way to contribute to society. This spirit of championing communities and youth remains today, through partnerships with organisations making a positive impact around the world. – from Burberry

I encourage you to dream, because sometimes dreams are all you will have. I encourage you to lay your head on the pillow and close your eyes tight and think of better days to come, because luckily for us, our dreams have come true. Would I be the Marcus Rashford you see stood in front of you today if it wasn’t for the hardship and struggle? Simple answer? No. You should never be ashamed to ask for help. Take pride in knowing that your struggle will play the biggest role in your purpose. Never drop your head in shame. – said Marcus Rashford in the open letter.
