England international joins Marcus Rashford’s campaign to feed hungry children

Former Northampton, Sale and Wasps star Chris Mayor has offered his full support to help feed hungry kids in his local area.

The 38-year-old, who represented England Sevens, is the co-owner of a fish and chip shop in his hometown of Chorley, which is near Preston in Lancashire.

Mayor has insisted that any child can come to ‘Oh My Cod’ and ask for a free cone of chips after the government’s decision not to extend free school meals throughout half term.

On Wednesday, Conservative MPs rejected Labour’s Opposition Day motion to extend free school meals by 322 votes to 261, with five Tory MPs rebelling.

One of those rebels, Mr Halfon, called on Mr Johnson to meet Manchester United striker Rashford, telling the BBC: “It may be that they don’t agree with everything that Marcus Rashford is proposing, but it would give us a chance to come up with a long-term plan to combat child food hunger once and for all.”
