Star Awards

Every year we recognise the dedication and commitment of the pancreatic cancer community through our Star Awards programme.  

The Pancreatic Cancer UK Star Awards are a continuation of awards we have given to supporters and professionals in previous years recognising people from across the pancreatic cancer community for their contributions to improving the lives of those with pancreatic cancer, raising much-needed funds and spreading awareness.

This year in 2020, we received more nominations than ever before, and we were so impressed by inspiring individuals who were nominated and everything they are doing for Pancreatic Cancer UK.
