NOMINATEYOUR LOCAL SPORTING HERO NOW
HOW often do you hear someone complain that the true unsung heroes of the hour are never fully appreciated?
You know the sort – the man who gets up at the crack of dawn every week to cut the grass on the pitch and lays the freshly-washed kits out so your child can play their favourite sport.
Or there’s the volunteer who, come rain or shine, makes the tea and serves the refreshments so that others can enjoy watching or playing their weekly football match.
All too often, these people go quietly about their business without anyone really appreciating the massive effort they put in behind the scenes to allow everyone else to have a great time.
Well, if you know someone like this, here is your chance to ensure their name and deeds are shouted from the rooftops.
Nominations are still open for the 11th Bucks and MK Sport Awards but they close on August 16, and there will sadly be no extra time for anyone missing the deadline.
We have had lots of entries so far, but more would be very much appreciated to get the best possible spread of representation at our glittering awards ceremony, to be held on November 18 at Aylesbury’s Waterside Theatre.
Categories will be: Active Workplace of the Year; Club of the Year; Project of the Year; Primary School of the Year; Secondary School of the Year; Volunteer of the Year; Young Leader of the Year; Community Coach of the Year; Performance Coach of the Year; Terry Cook Unsung Hero of the Year.
So, if you know someone worthy of one of these awards, please make sure you nominate them – or you may leave your hero with a zero chance of winning.
