Andy Murray is the world’s number one tennis player and was appointed a Unicef UK Ambassador in 2016.
Andy started supporting Unicef in 2014 when we partnered with the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
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.
Andy Murray live
Andy Murray Live was launched in 2016, an exhibition match which raised £305,000 for Unicef and a local Glasgow charity. Following this success, the 2017 event was announced in February and will be again taking place at the SSE in Glasgow on 7 November. With a line up also featuring Roger Federer, Jamie Murray, Tim Henman and Mansour Bahrami, tickets sold out within 4 hours of the launch. We’ll be reporting from the event on our social channels so tune in to find out more.
You can join Andy and help us reach more children in Europe who have been forced to flee their homes – make a donation today to our child refugee appeal.
