In recent years the Manchester United ambassador has created a fund to advance research into kidney disease, to transform kidney transplants, and help patients with their mental health and wellbeing.

The former England star was inspired to set up the Andy Cole Fund with Kidney Research UK, after suffering kidney failure in 2015. The 49-year-old has spent the last five years coming to terms with a ‘new normal’ and is now passionate about helping others cope with the challenges of kidney disease and transplants.
