Andy Murray is Britain's number one tennis player. He started supporting Unicef in 2014 when we partnered with the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.  

In June 2015 Andy starred in a series of comedy tennis sketches for Unicef UK’s #BeatDisease appeal, raising awareness and vital funds to keep children safe from disease. He appeared in the sketches with One Direction's Liam Payne, television presenter Clare Balding, and comedians Jack Whitehall and Richard Ayoade

The videos scored over a million views on Andy's Facebook

In September 2015, spurred on by the child migrant and refugee crisis, Andy decided that for every ace he served to the end of 2015 he would donate £50 to Unicef's work for children caught up in emergencies. Donations were matched by his partner Standard Life and by the LTA and ATP. This together with donations from his fans raised over £83,000 to help children whose world has been turned upside down by conflict or disaster.

In April 2016 Andy became a Unicef UK Ambassador and announced the launch of Andy Murray Live at the SSE Hydro, Glasgow on 21st September 2016 to help raise money for Unicef.
