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…

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 2019.
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 2018 and 31 July 2019.

Read a blog from Janet Qualters who won the Shirley Nolan Award for Special Recognition in 2018.

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.


Nominations closed at 9:30am on Wednesday 21st August 2019.


Finalists will be invited to the ANSAs ceremony at the Tower of London on Thursday 28 November.
