The City of Manchester Award has been given to Marcus Rashford in recognition of his work to extend free school meals during school holidays.

Manchester City Councils said the award was introduced as a way of recognising an individual’s ‘outstanding and exceptional contribution to the city’.

Cllr Tommy Judge, incoming Lord Mayor of Manchester, said: ‘The way he and his wonderful family has stood up for what they believe in, the way they have given a voice to the powerless has been remarkable to see. And the pride we feel in Wythenshawe for what he and his family have done is huge.

’So, it’s with great honour that as my first act as Lord Mayor of Manchester we bestow the City of Manchester Award to Marcus. Thank you for everything you have done for young people in this city and across the country.’
