Nominate an inspiring young person for our Hannah Dennis Alopecia Awareness Award 2021

Being awarded for the second time in September 2021, the Hannah Dennis Alopecia Awareness Award will be given out annually to a child or young person (aged 3-23) in recognition of their efforts to raise awareness of alopecia.

About the Award

At Alopecia UK, we are very lucky to be in touch with some fabulous young people who work hard to raise awareness of alopecia. This might involve raising awareness in their school or college, or spreading the word in their local community, and/or fundraising for Alopecia UK.

We are excited to be welcoming nominations again for this award to celebrate achievements in alopecia awareness, whilst honouring the memory of a wonderful friend to Alopecia UK, Hannah Dennis.

About Hannah

Hannah Dennis is a much-loved volunteer and supporter of Alopecia UK who sadly passed away in 2018. Hannah did so much in her life to raise awareness of alopecia after she was diagnosed with alopecia areata at the age of 14, losing all her hair at the age of 16.

Hannah created videos on YouTube to help others with alopecia and to raise awareness of the condition. Hannah was a proud champion of Alopecia UK and would regularly signpost her own followers back to the charity and raise awareness of our work. If you would like to read more about all the wonderful alopecia awareness Hannah provided, please see here.

Last year’s winner – well done Bonnie!
