Unsung Hero award opens doors!

Since 2003, the stars of the sporting community of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire have been recognised by The BBC Get Inspired Unsung Hero award.

Last year's Yorkshire champion, basketball coach Neil Kelsey, believes winning the award for his region has opened several doors for his sport and has attracted more players and more children to take up the game.

Do you know someone who inspires people to get active in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire? Nominations are open now, so put forward someone who inspires you by completing this form by Monday 20 October, and give them the recognition they deserve!

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.
