Its a #BigThankYou to the UK’s sporting volunteers

BBC Sports Personality of the Year takes place this Sunday 18th December in Birmingham.

The event will once again be celebrating the fantastic sporting success of our nation, and amongst the 16 nominees this year is Paralympian Kadeena Cox. Kadeena represented England at the CPISRA World Games in Nottingham in 2015 winning the T37 100m and 200m sprint in athletics. At the Paralympics she became the first Briton since 1988 to win a medal in two sports (athletics and cycling).

On the night there will be a special focus on saying thank you to the UK’s sporting volunteers as part of the #BigThankYou campaign. Live on the red carpet, sporting superstars will surprise volunteers with a phone call to publicly thank them for the contribution they make in sport.

The #BigThankYou is Britain’s biggest celebration of sports volunteers and recognises the thousands of unsung heroes who give up their time to work tirelessly so others can enjoy many sport and fitness activities. It will be recognised over the weekend of the 17th and 18th December.

Cerebral Palsy Sport will be celebrating our outstanding volunteers, posting pictures on social media and thanking them through #BigThankYou.
