The Bone Cancer Research Trust are delighted to be launching our first ever awards ceremony, dedicated to recognising achievement in the primary bone cancer community.
Greatly admired, loved, or revered - this is what makes an Idol and that is what describes the individuals who the The Bone Idols are here to recognise.
Our new awards give our community the opportunity to recognise outstanding individuals and thank them for the incredible work they do and contribution they make.
This year there will be 7 Bone Idol award categories with 4 of these open to public nomination. The award categories are:

Mat Cottle-Shaw, Head of Fundraising & Communications, said:
For the first time ever, we are delighted to bring to our community the opportunity to recognise outstanding individuals for their contribution to the primary bone cancer community. The awards champion the countless individuals who offer support, strive for change, demonstrate commitment, and take action for all those affected by primary bone cancer. The Bone Cancer Research Trust takes every opportunity possible to thank our community, and for the first time, these awards offer you the opportunity to say thank you and recognise someone you admire in a very special and unique way.
