The Anthony Nolan Supporter Awards (ANSAs) is Anthony Nolan’s annual awards ceremony. The ANSAs gives us the chance to say thank you to the incredible supporters that make our lifesaving work possible.
The event has been taking place for the past four years, and has seen hundreds of awards presented to deserving fundraisers, families of patients, donors, clinical supporters and journalists, all of whom have supported Anthony Nolan in a number of ways.
Award nominees are decided by a mixture of recommendations from within the organisation and public nominations.

Public nominations for the John Petchey Hero of the Year and The Shirley Nolan Award for Special Recognition closed on Monday 20 August 2018. 
Finalists were invited to the ANSAs ceremony at the Tower of London Thursday 22 November.
Winners were selected by a panel of judges from Anthony Nolan, chaired by our Chief Executive, Henny Braund.
