Stand up and be counted. We need your support now more than ever. Set up a regular donation, one-off gift or host a fundraising event.
If you’ve been moved by Andy’s goals or his transplant story, whether you’re part of the ‘football family’ or know how this condition or a transplant can change lives, now’s the time to join Andy's Fund…help finish kidney disease for good.
Show your support by making a regular donation with the Andy Cole Fund season ticket. Your gift will mean we can commit to ongoing projects making a difference to those living with the physical and psychological effects of kidney disease.
Sign up for an Andy Cole Fund Season Ticket and receive an exclusive welcome pack including;
Andy Cole Fund pin badge.
Limited edition signed Andy Cole postcard.
A donation to match the 17 shirt worn by Andy on his move to Manchester United in 1995 – the year he scored five in one game against Ipswich – would hit the target of changing kidney patients’ lives.
Newcastle fans worship their Number 9s from Cole to Keegan and Shearer. Help our research and nursing teams bring a ‘back of the net’ moment for patients, like Andy did 68 times in 84 games for the Toon.

Join us for a gala dinner
Join us for an evening of luxury food and entertainment at one of London’s most iconic 5-star hotels; The Dorchester.
This charity gala dinner will celebrate the launch of the Andy Cole Fund and will raise vital funds to advance research into kidney disease, develop transplant treatments and help patients with their mental health and wellbeing.
On the evening enjoy:
- Luxury drinks reception
- Delicious three course meal with wine
- Live entertainment including an after dinner DJ
- Live and silent auctions
Get the ball rolling
By donating to the Andy Cole Fund you will be supporting vital research to improve the lives of kidney patients.
You could be a real champion, just like Andy, by organising your own fundraiser. Fantasy football or 5a side, there are plenty of ways you could raise money:
- Host a sponsored FIFA tournament
- Arrange a charity sports quiz night
- Organise a ‘football legends’ dress-down day at work or school
The idea doesn’t have to be football related either. You could:
- Raise money with a head (or beard) shave
- Go for a sponsored 5km run
- Plan a workplace bake sale
No idea is a bad idea and we’re here to support you however you choose to get involved. If you need help, or for information on how to get started, contact our fundraising team for a chat.
