Boy, seven, thanks Marcus Rashford for his charity work

A schoolboy has thanked Marcus Rashford for his charity work in a letter in which he vowed to give his own toys to the needy before asking: 'Can you please join Spurs?'

The England and star hit headlines earlier this year when he  forced a Government U-turn to ensure free school meal vouchers were provided to children throughout the summer.

He has since joined a child poverty task force backed by major supermarkets, and is now pushing ministers to make a list of reforms to tackle child poverty in the UK. 

Rashford, 22, last night shared a letter he received from Jack Lees, seven, who had written to the footballer to thank him for 'everything you do'.

In the note, Jack said: 'I love all the work you've done, some amazing things to help families who need it.

'You have inspired me because you're so thoughtful and helped children through the hardest times of their life.

'You make me want to help others and be a better person. Because of you, we will donate more food to food banks and our toys and clothes to charity to help other families near us too.

'Your football skills also inspire me to practice my football more to be a better player.' 

Before he closed the letter, Jack asked: 'Can you please join Spurs?' 

Rashford posted the note to Twitter last night, writing: 'Dear Jack, thank you for your lovely letter. Really made me smile tonight.

'Keep being kind. That's what makes the world go round.' 

Dozens of social media users took to the comments to praise the exchange, with one writing: 'It will be letters like this, which you’ll keep, which will make you the proudest of what you did in your life.'
