The shortlist for the 2017 Anthony Nolan Supporter Awards has been announced by the charity today (Tuesday 17 October).
The annual awards ceremony is held to recognise and thank Anthony Nolan’s outstanding patients, donors, volunteers and fundraisers whose support helps us to give three people a second chance of life every day.
Henny Braund, Chief Executive of Anthony Nolan says: “Our supporters have had a hugely busy year: from campaigning to fund second transplants, informing our patient information and recruiting donors; to organising a year’s worth of fundraising events and scaling Mount Kilimanjaro I would like to congratulate all the nominees for making it to the shortlist."
“With their continued support, and passion, Anthony Nolan will be able to give a second chance of life to everyone that needs one, and ensure patients have the support they need to thrive.”
The Anthony Nolan Supporter Awards will take place on 28th November 2017 at the House of Commons. The event is sponsored by Colleen Fletcher MP and winners will be announced on the night.
