Andy Murray Signed Shoes
Last year Andy Murray, OBE, currently ranked number 11 in the world and the number 1 British player, ended years of British heartbreak by becoming the first British man in 77 years to win the coveted men’s singles Wimbledon crown. Alongside his Wimbledon success, Andy has a US Open title to his name as well as another 29 career ATP titles and an Olympic Gold and Silver Medal.
This is the third time he is donating to Small Steps Project. In 2013, Andy kindly donated his 2013 Wimbledon champion’s shoes. In 2014, he also donated a great pair of shoes: Wimbledon 2014 shoes, worn during the tournament in which he narrowly missed out on retaining his champion title, progressing to the quarter final.

Small Steps Project is a UK charity that wants to inspire everyone to take a small step, because together it is possible to make a difference.
From people volunteering their skills and attending their events, to companies donating their products and services, Small Steps raises funds that go to those who need it most. First, they provide emergency aid, shoes and food to children and communities living on municipal rubbish dumps around the world. Then they provide support for children to take steps into education, and adults into employment.
They deliver their projects in two phases. In the first phase they deliver emergency aid distribution projects, providing items that will protect people from the immediate dangers on rubbish dumps—from shoes, gloves and clothing to mosquito nets, food and water. This enables them to establish the demographics of the dump and devise and implement the second phase of sustainable projects that aims to reduce the time children spend on dumps and support them in taking small steps into education.
Small Steps Project makes documentary films and organises campaigns, such as Celebrity Shoe Auctions, to boost awareness and raise funds for this huge, but often overlooked, global situation.
