We were absolutely delighted to be specially commended at the recent Anthony Nolan Supporter Awards (Monday 4th November). It was great to go down to the House of Commons to receive the award on behalf of all our fantastic volunteers and supporters...but the biggest thrill of all was seeing all the other supporters... wonderful people and so inspiring. Well done to all of them and not to be forgotten are all those many, many deserving individuals who didn't get nominated... you are all heroes to us!
We were absolutely delighted that also picking up a very well deserved award was our local newspaper The Leicester Mercury. The editor Richard Bettsworth was there to pick up the regional journalist of the year award for all the fantastic coverage the newspaper has given to our campaign and others working to save lives. Through their excellent coverage they have without doubt helped raise awareness regarding stem cell donation in the region... well done Leicester Mercury on winning an award so richly deserved.
