As well as creating a legacy tennis event in Scotland, it is important to Andy that all the proceeds from Andy Murray Live are donated to charity.
Each year the funds are shared equally between Unicef UK, the world’s leading children’s organisation, of which Murray is an Ambassador, and a local Scottish charity.
Following the success of last year’s fantastic Andy Murray Live event, we are thrilled that it’s taking place for a second year.
As a Unicef UK Ambassador, Andy has shown an amazing commitment to helping children in danger, and we are so proud to once again have his support for our vital work.
The event will help raise awareness and much-needed funds for children in emergencies all around the world, including those caught up in the current refugee crisis. The money raised will help Unicef provide children with immediate, life-saving care, protection and supplies, as well as lasting support to help families rebuild their lives.

We are so grateful to Andy for choosing to support us this year.
My brother Chris would have been very proud that his dedication to those less fortunate than himself had been recognised in this way. The funds from Andy Murray Live will allow us to make a real difference to those in need – not just close to home but also in Sri Lanka where we continue with the good work started by Chris after the Boxing Day Tsunami.

At the end of Andy Murray Live 2017, the total amount raised by the event and by donations was £700,000. This was shared equally between the two charities.
