The entire nation will be backing Andy Murray today in his bid to become the first man to win a singles title at Wimbledon since 1936. But if his Swiss opponent, Roger Federer, won then there would be some compensation for an Oxfordshire based charity.
Oxfam could reap more than £100,000 if a late benefactor's wager comes off. In 2003 Nick Newlife, from Oxfordshire, put £1,520 on Federer winning seven Wimbledon titles by 2019, at odds of 66/1. He died in 2009 but left the betting slip, potentially worth £101,840, to Oxfam in his will.
