Unicef teams with Andy Murray, Clare Balding and Liam Payne for Children in Danger appeal

Unicef has united with tennis player Andy Murray, comedian Jack Whitehall, One Direction's Liam Payne and broadcaster Clare Balding for a comedy sketch in aid of the charity's Children in Danger Summer Disease Appeal.

The sketch, which has been released on Facebook today (16 June), comes as the tennis world descends on The Queen’s Club this week and sees Murray take on the role of coach trying to get his team ready for a charity tennis match.

Murray commented on the film: “Sadly there are thousands of children that don’t get the vaccinations they need to grow up healthy. Unicef does an incredible job of reaching children living in the poorest and most remote countries to make sure they’re protected, but there’s so much more to do."

The sketch aims to raise awareness and funds for Unicef UK's appeal, which will provide health care and life-saving vaccines for children in danger of disease.
