Aegon Championship: This Is What Sir Andy Murray Will Do With £346,000 Prize Money If He Wins

Sir Andy Murray is planning to donate his prize money from the Aegon Championships to those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire if he wins the tournament, it has been reported.

The world number one will hand over his cheque, which will be more than £346,000 if he wins his sixth title, according to reports in a number of newspapers.

The tournament is taking place at Queen’s Club, a few miles from the burnt-out tower block in west London.

Murray has supported a number of charitable causes throughout his career.

He donated his Queen’s winnings to the Royal Marsden Hospital in 2013, where his friend Ross Hutchins was being treated for cancer.

He has also seen first-hand how a tragedy can affect a community.

He and his brother Jamie were pupils at Dunblane Primary School when 16 pupils and their teacher were massacred on March 13 1996.

The children – aged five and six – and teacher Gwen Mayor were murdered by Thomas Hamilton when he opened fire on a gym class.

The massacre in the Stirlingshire town shocked the nation and led to the UK enforcing some of the strictest firearms legislation in the world.
