Andy Murray To Donate Winnings From Queen's To Grenfell Families

Kind hearted world number one tennis ace Andy Murray has said he will donate any winnings from the Aegon Championships at Queen’s in London, to the families of victims of the recent Grenfell Tower inferno.

Scotsman Murray, could potentially win up to to £350,000, should he win the competition.

Murray, 30, will face fellow Brit Aljaz Bedene in his opening match.

Andy has given freely to charity previously. In 2013, he gave his earnings from Queen’s to the Royal Marsden Centre, where his friend and doubles partner, Ross Hutchins was being treated for Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Murray donated £73,000 on that occasion.

The UK government have set aside a five million pound fund to help families who are affected by the disaster.
