East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire search for Unsung Hero

As part of BBC Sports Personality of the Year, BBC Look North is once again looking for some very special people working in sport.

Do you know someone who helps others take part in sport within your community?

Someone who goes that extra mile to make a difference to sport?

If so, why not nominate them for a BBC's Sports Unsung Hero award in Hull, East Yorkshire or Lincolnshire?

The awards have run annually since 2003. They recognise special people who dedicate their lives to promoting sport in their community, taking no reward from it other than the pleasure of helping others to participate and enjoy their sport.

Julie Norman from the Acorn judo club in Digby, Lincolnshire, won last year. She said: "It was an unbeliveable honour and it was a surprise because I come here every week just to enjoy teaching the children."

Former Grimsby Town star John McDermott was chosen as the ambassador for this year's awards.

McDermott recalls one such hero who helped coach him as a youngster. "We had a guy who used to cut the oranges and we played in the colours of his favourite team," he said.

Please fill in the form below, and post or email as directed.
