Nominate boxing’s unsung heroes for BBC award

October 6, 2020 | by Matt Halfpenny


Nominations for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year’s 2020 Unsung Hero award are now open – so don’t forget to put forward your boxing community champions.

If you know someone who has gone to extraordinary lengths for their local community during an unprecedented year, make sure you put them forward for the award!

Young people aged 15 and under will also be celebrated for the very first time this year thanks to the introduction of the Captain Tom: Young Unsung Hero award.

It is named in honour of the incredible Captain Sir Tom Moore, who has raised £38.9m for NHS charities.

Both awards will see finalists from Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and each of the 12 English regions.

The Unsung Hero awards will be supported by Made by Sport, a charity that champions the power of sport to change lives and shines a light on the thousands of organisations successfully using sport to tackle major social issues.

To nominate your Unsung Hero and Young Unsung Hero by video, audio, online webform or via email, simply visit the BBC website.

Entries close on Sunday 25 October at midnight. Good luck!
