    World Cup winner Adil Rashid has taken to handing out food to hungry children in his home city of Bradford this half-term.

    Rashid, the England and Yorkshire leg-spinner, has joined the Volunteering Interfaith Programme team working out of the Masjid-e-Quba mosque.

    The 32-year-old wanted to do something practical, having taken inspiration from fellow England international Marcus Rashford’s lobbying of the government to extend free school meal vouchers across holiday periods.

    ‘There are over 40,000 kids in Bradford in poverty and we are doing our bit by making sure none of them go hungry these holidays,’ Rashid told Sportsmail.

    The VIP in Bradford have been distributing meals and food packages to the needy courtesy of donations from local businesses.

    Manchester United and England striker Rashford, 22, has been awarded an MBE for his work to tackle child poverty.

    The Government extended the free school meal voucher scheme over the summer holidays as a result of Rashford’s campaigning.

    But it has refused to extend it further, saying councils in England had already been given money to support families.

    When a motion to extend the scheme was voted down in the House of Commons, businesses around the country rallied behind Rashford’s campaign.

    The footballer used the reach of his Twitter account to highlight pubs, restaurants and cafes that were offering free food to eligible children over half-term.
