Purple Star Award

We have previously awarded a special glass Purple Star Award to acknowledge and thank supporters and health professionals who have made outstanding contributions to our work.

The Purple Stars are especially made for us by Celia Goodman, a glass sculptor and Pancreatic Cancer UK supporter who sadly lost her daughter to pancreatic cancer in 2010 at the age of 29.

We are delighted to announce a brand new Awards Programme this year, which will provide more opportunities for supporters and health professionals to be recognised and honoured.

Our Purple Star Awards are for an individual or group who have demonstrated an outstanding contribution in supporting the work of Pancreatic Cancer UK.

How do I nominate?

Nominations are now closed. Our judging panel will consist of a combination of Pancreatic Cancer UK Trustees, patients and carer’s and staff who will then choose a winner from the nominations. The winner will be informed in the new year.

The Purple Star legacy

In 2016, as part of our tenth anniversary celebrations, we decided to award ten stars to exceptional supporters. Take a look at our gallery of last year's winners.
