Rashford: transcription

[AUDIO CLIP OF RASHFORD SCORING A GOAL]

Presenter: [00:01] Marcus Rashford’s focus isn’t just on scoring goals anymore.

[CONTINUED AUDIO CLIP OF RASHFORD ON PITCH]

Presenter: [00:06] His plan for free meals for the poorest children in England during half-term might have been rejected by the government, but he’s not giving up.

Rashford: [00:14] They’ve definitely not been through it themselves. For me it’s, you know, I’ll take that all day long as we start to see improvements going forward.

Presenter: [00:21] And judging by the number of restaurants and cafes he’s been retweeting all day, others feel the same.

Alison: [00:26] A healthy sandwich, there will be fruit, a yogurt, and some crisps and a treat as well.

Presenter: [00:33] Alison runs a brewery in Salford. Monday to Friday next week, she’ll be packing up free lunches. She’s from a big family, seven brothers and four sisters, so this is personal.

Alison: [00:43] Being on free school meals, as a young child, I guess you don’t really appreciate or understand all that your parents are not able to provide, those three meals a day for you.

Presenter: [00:54] Loads of places are inspired by the strikers’ campaign, like Mark in Newcastle, who’s opening up their local football club next week. Their ad says ‘no child should go hungry. No judgement, no questions, just get in touch.’

Mark: [01:08] Sandwiches, crisps, either a fruit or yogurt and a drink. It’s always something little, but for someone, it’s something massive.

Presenter: [01:17] Same story over in Manchester, where sandwiches, crisps and fresh fruit’s on offer.

Chloe: [01:22] Hi! We’re from Time Out Food Co in West Didsbury.

Presenter: [01:24] Chloe and her team wanted to get involved.

Chloe: [01:26] ‘Cause of everything that’s happened in parliament over the past last couple of days, I think it’s really wrong that children should go without meals during the holidays in such a hard times.

Presenter: [01:35] The campaign did force a government U-turn to offer free meals during the summer in England. You got a supermarket voucher, or headed to a holiday club. But this time, politicians aren’t persuaded. They say they’re already looking after those in need.

Steve: [01:48] The issue is, what is the best way of getting support to families?

Presenter: [01:51] Steve Barclay is from the treasury.

Steve: [01:53] We have done that through the welfare system, through the support to local authorities, targeted measures in schools, and above all tried to help as many people keep their jobs.

Presenter: [02:00] In Wales and Scotland, there will be free meals until next Easter. Northern Ireland, over this half term. So, there’s pressure on England. Birmingham, Staffordshire, and Kensington and Chelsea local authorities have promised to provide vouchers. For some, it’s the only way.

Unnamed woman: [02:16] We just wanted to come together as a family and do this, so this is just a gift from our family to everybody else’s families out there.
