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 – and that’s where you come in…


If you know an inspiring young hero or someone who constantly goes above and beyond for Anthony Nolan then we want to hear about it! Nominate yourself, or someone you think deserves recognition, in either of the following categories:
John Petchey Young Hero of the Year
We’re looking for a young Anthony Nolan supporter who has made a difference to the lives of people with blood cancer – either by personally supporting Anthony Nolan, or by inspiring others to support us. Entrants should be aged 16 or under on 1 June 2017.
The Shirley Nolan Award for Special Recognition
This award recognises an individual who has made a significant contribution to Anthony Nolan, going above and beyond in their support.


We’re looking for people who have shown an exceptional level of commitment to supporting Anthony Nolan’s work between 1 August 2016 and 31 July 2017. These awards aren’t just about how much money has been raised or how many hours someone has spent volunteering – it’s about the unsung heroes who make Anthony Nolan’s lifesaving work possible.
Entries must be submitted by 21 August 2017. 
Finalists will be invited to the ANSAs ceremony at the House of Commons on Tuesday 28 November.
Winners will be selected by a panel of judges from Anthony Nolan, chaired by our Chief Executive, Henny Braund.
