Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford in the month of October started a Christmas campaign to support his city's biggest front-line services for young people who were homeless. Rashford teamed up with department store Selfridges for the In-Box campaign and worked with some of Manchester's most prominent homeless charities including Barnabus, Centrepoint and Lifeshare. According to reports, the idea behind the charity was for members of the public to prepare shoeboxes filled with essential items such as gloves, hats, deodorants, thermals, toothpaste and torches.
