Shortlist Announced for the Anthony Nolan Supporter Awards


Celebrating 40 Years Of Saving Lives

Anthony Nolan has announced the shortlist of nominees for the Anthony Nolan Supporter Awards.


In the year that they celebrate 40 years of saving lives, the Anthony Nolan Supporter Awards are back with a bang to celebrate and recognise our supporters – their way of saying thank you to the people who keep Anthony Nolan going.


This year they had an unprecedented volume of nominations from Anthony Nolan’s fantastic supporters all over the UK.


The judging panel sifted through the nominations and it was very difficult to narrow down all of these deserving nominees into this shortlist.


Henny Braund, Chief Executive of Anthony Nolan, said: “We wouldn’t be celebrating our 40th anniversary without every single one of those people who tirelessly campaign, raise funds, donate their time and spread the word about our work each year. Everyone who supports Anthony Nolan should be proud of their vital contribution to the charity’s lifesaving work. This year’s awards will be a fitting occasion to bring some of these people together and thank them for helping us to save more lives every day.”
