Louise Redknapp wears £1,400 Balenciaga coat as she volunteers to make packed lunches for children

LOUISE Redknapp looked glamorous in a £1,400 Balenciaga coat as she volunteered to make packed lunches for children today.

Jamie Redknapp's ex was spotted delivering meals to kids after the government voted against the extension of free meal vouchers during half-term.

Louise, 45, teamed the flashy coat with stiletto boots, ripped jeans, and a black sweater.

But the singer's nude raincoat stole the show with the word 'BALENCIAGA' emblazoned on the back.

Louise was joined by Love Islander Josh Denzel at The Schoolhouse in Battersea, where the stars were part of the full production chain.

Sharing pictures on Instagram, Louise said: "Today I spent the day preparing meals down at @theschoolhouselondon. 

"They are offering free school dinners during half term and providing both cold and hot reheatable food packages for those in need. 

"No child should ever go hungry. This amazing gesture from @mattmcclymont and @tomvwess is all helping those families struggling during these tough uncertain times and it would be amazing if more people or businesses could get involved."

She added: "We shouldn’t even have to be having the conversation about if or not children should be entitled to free meals... if the government won’t do anything about it... then we can try and help #endchildfoodpoverty x 

"For more information or to support via the go fund me page head over to the @theschoolhouselondon page.'

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has praised local communities for stepping up after his petition to give free school meals to vulnerable children in the holidays was voted down in Parliament last week.

MPs rejected a Labour motion to extend free school meals over the school holidays until Easter 2021.

Dozens of councils also promised to provide vouchers to low-income families.

And McDonald’s stepped in with a million free meals.

The nation’s heartwarming surge of support came after a Labour motion to offer free school meals over the holidays until Easter 2021 was defeated in the Commons.

Three Lions hero Rashford, — who forced a Government U-turn over vouchers in the summer holidays and was recently awarded an MBE — started tweeting the details of generous firms and councils on Thursday night.

Those backing the Manchester United striker include businesses in Tier 3 “very high” Covid alert areas such as Liverpool and Sheffield.
