Tennis player Andy Murray is selling old match shirts to raise pounds for the charity Malaria No More.

Ranked number four in the world, and recently named British player of the year, Murray plans to sell 100 of his Fred Perry shirts for £15 each. For every shirt sold, Malaria No More will buy three mosquito nets to prevent African children from getting the disease.

The sale starts December 21 on The shirts, each worn by Murray at some point, will be sold on a first come first served basis.

A huge rush by fans is expected, and Sarah Kline of Malaria No More is excited about Murray’s involvement: “We are thrilled Andy is supporting our efforts to put an end to malaria deaths by 2015.”

Murray said, “This is the first global charity that I have been involved with in this capacity and it was an easy decision. Malaria is completely preventable, but yet it still kills more children in Africa than any other disease. We can change this. It is a huge opportunity and I’m urging the UK to get behind Malaria No More.”
