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… and finish kidney disease for good.
Your regular donation will mean we can commit to ongoing projects and support our brilliant teams of doctors, researchers and nurses in carrying out life-saving research… to make a difference to all of those living with the physical and psychological effects of kidney disease. Research cannot wait for this pandemic to pass.
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.

Get the ball rolling
We’re all desperate for a kick about right now, so why not use the time stuck indoors to arrange a charity match for Andy’s Fund? Or if not a football match, then here’s some other 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.
