Anthony Nolan is delighted to announce the shortlist for the 2018 Anthony Nolan Supporter Awards (ANSAs).
Finalists in 16 categories will be recognised in Anthony Nolan’s annual event, celebrating supporters, which takes place next month (Thursday 22 November) at the Tower of London.
Henny Braund, Chief Executive of Anthony Nolan, says: ‘Congratulations to everyone who has being shortlisted in the 2018 Anthony Nolan Supporter Awards.
‘Every day at least five people begin their search for a matching unrelated stem cell donor to treat their blood cancer or blood disorder. We’re incredibly lucky to have so many people supporting Anthony Nolan’s vital work to find a match for everyone in need of a lifesaving transplant. Our nominees have excelled over the last year by putting a great deal of time and energy into supporting Anthony Nolan.
Henny added: ‘We want to say a massive thank you, and congratulations, to everyone and we are looking forward to celebrating with them at the Tower of London.’
