These awards were introduced in 2012 to recognise and reward the individual and groups that contribute time, energy and donations to Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation every year.
No winners are more deserving. They are not celebrities but real stars, unsung heroes of all ages whose stories take your breath away. The Star Awards are our way to say thank you to all our fundraisers, volunteers and supporters who have made our vital work possible.
Please note, nominations are now closed. The shortlist for each category will be announced shortly.
