Funds will be raised for a football charity in honour of a Posh fan who died after battling illness.

Andy Mills was just 46-years-old when he died last week after suffering from a brain tumour.

The passionate football fan was well known by fans and Peterborough United staff for his incredible knowledge of the club, and his kind hearted nature.

He worked closely with Peterborough charity The Free Kicks Foundation, raising money and taking part in events for the organisation.

Andy’s funeral will take place next week, and his widow has requested family flowers only at the funeral - with anyone wishing to make charity donations to give money to The Free Kicks Foundation.

Now a Just Giving page has been set up in his honour, and less than 24 hours after the page was created, nearly £200 has already been raised.

A spokesman for the charity, which helps deserving children attend football matches and act as mascots on match day, said: “We are honoured that Andy Mills chose us as his nominated charity to receive donations in his memory. We have set up a Just Giving page for those who can’t make it to his funeral next Wednesday.”

Andy’s funeral will take place on December 6 at 1.30 at Manor Farm Community Centre, Eye. Andy requested traditional dress, family flowers only.
