Barnes Children's Literature Festival donates Marcus Rashford book to every primary school in the borough

20 October 2021

All primary school libraries in Richmond upon Thames will be receiving a free copy of the bestselling book 'You Are A Champion: How to Be the Best You Can Be' by the Manchester United and England footballer and activist Marcus Rashford MBE, thanks to the Barnes Children's Literature Festival.

Marcus' book, which won the 2021 Sainsbury's Children's Book Award, draws on stories from his childhood in south Manchester and his career as an international footballer, to show children that they are all champions of being themselves - they just might not know it yet!
