Top tennis star to donate winnings to London fire victims

Andy Murray has reportedly agreed to donate prize money from the Aegon Championships, a pre-Wimbledon warm up event, to survivors of the London tower inferno.

Several UK newspapers are reporting the Scottish World Number One tennis player pledged to hand over the $580,450 winner’s cheque to the victims of the Grenfell fire which killed 79, but first he needs to win.

The Queen’s club tournament is held just a few kilometres from the charred west London tower block.


Murray knows tragedy first hand.  He and his brother Jamie were students at Dunblane Primary School, the scene of a mass shooting in the 90’s.

16 pupils, aged five and six, and their teacher were massacred on March 13 1996.
