Hungry Children Christmas Fund

The footballer Marcus Rashford MBE has been campaigning tirelessly to try to force the UK government to help feed hungry children during the school holidays. But on the 21st October 2020, Conservative MPs used their power to vote against preventing hunger in the poorest families.

Whilst it is true that there should be a political solution, and children in poverty should not have to rely on charity, this must now be a long term goal. Because the problem is now urgent and upon us. In just a few weeks, schools will close and pandemic-hit families will have empty cupboards.

Marcus Rashford will continue his good work, I have no doubt. But it shouldn’t all be on him. As he continues the pressure for a political solution, here is a chance to give whatever you can to provide something to help in the short term. All money raised will be sent to charities with a long and reliable track record of providing food for children in poverty, along with local food banks in hardest hit areas.

I know the responsibility lies with politicians, but they have failed us and the children. While the adults fix the politics, please give what you can so children don’t go hungry while they wait.

If you already give what you can elsewhere, thank you. This is not to supersede already established efforts, but rather to provide a focus point for anyone who has woken up angry and frustrated and wanting to give.

Thank you for whatever you can offer at this difficult time.
