Sal Brinton shortlisted for Anthony Nolan award

Last night the winners were announced for the Anthony Nolan Supporters awards. Amongst the nominees in the category for Political Supporter of the year was our own Sal Brinton, Lib Dem Health and Social Care spokesperson in the House of Lords and former President of the Liberal Democrats.

The citation reads:

Baroness Sal Brinton

Sal has been a committed parliamentary advocate for Clinically Extremely Vulnerable people during the pandemic and has helped to raise the profile of Anthony Nolan with senior ministers and officials, enabling Anthony Nolan to take policy asks straight to government.

Congratulations to Sal on the shortlisting, and to Clive Betts MP on winning this category.

    Aged twelve, first year of secondary school, the first annual charity walk, twenty miles, I did, for the Anthony Nolan charity! Great memories.

    Sal is a first class advocate on this and much, especially her own disability experience brought to this issue.

    One of the neglected areas, in this pandemic, and before and as usual, disability, vulnerability!

    Congratulation to Sal on her award. The subject of disability is a neglected area. From housing to travel, there is much to be done.
    When I became unwell five years ago, and began to find walking difficult, it was quite frightening, as the reason why had to be found. From a bone cancer, to various other bone conditions the search began.
    The Anthony Nolan Trust is a very important charity for those needing support.
