The Anthony Nolan Supporter Awards (ANSAs) is Anthony Nolan’s annual awards ceremony. The ANSAs gives us the chance to say thank you thank you to our incredible supporters. Without them, none of our lifesaving work would be possible.
The event has been taking place for the past six 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 – and that’s where you come in…

Follow the conversation on social media using #AnthonyNolanAwards.

Finalists will be invited to the ANSAs ceremony at the Tower of London on Thursday 28 November.
Winners will be selected by a panel of judges from Anthony Nolan, chaired by our Chief Executive, Henny Braund.
