Andrew – or Andy, as we know him - has been involved with Christian Aid since the late 1950s.  He and his late wife Edna organised the annual Christian Aid Week house to house collection for their church, Townsend Street Presbyterian in the lower Shankill Road.

Andy and Edna expanded the Christian Aid collection to their own neighbourhood of Ballygomartin and despite all the challenges which have faced this area of Belfast in the past 50 years, he has faithfully continued to reach out to his community on behalf of Christian Aid.

Andy has led by example and has inspired generosity in others, both of time and money.  At a young 86 years of age, Andy Murray is a wonderful example of all that is good about Belfast and in particular the generous spirit of the people of North Belfast.

We offer our sincere thanks to Andy for his dedication and congratulations on this award.
