BBC Unsung Hero Award – 2014

Do you know someone who inspires people to get involved in playing sport in their community?

It could be a person who gives up their time to encourage others to take part in sport, or someone who is helping to unearth a champion of the future, or maybe they are the ones who keep a local team or club going.

The BBC Get Inspired Unsung Hero award has been running since 2003, and recognises the remarkable achievements of people throughout the UK. The nomination period for the 2014 Awards is now open. Put forward someone you know or work with now by letting us via i.berry@volleyballengland.org and we will send you a nomination form.

Panels will meet in each of the BBC’s 15 Nations picking one winner from each Nation. The overall winner will be selected from those 15 and will be announced during the BBC Sports Personality of the Year programme in December. Take a look at the video to find out more about the selection process.

You can also call 01509-227722 to request that a nomination form is posted to you. Please note that the last day we will dispatch posted nomination forms will be Friday 17th October.

There is a continuing need for more unsung heroes in sport in the UK. If you have been inspired by this and want to get involved in helping grassroots sport in your community, visit the Get Inspired guide to volunteering, there is also a dedicated page for coaching.
