Jonathan Lee, Robinsons sponsorship and programmes manager, said: "The BBC Sports Unsung Hero award recognises and rewards the enormous effort and commitment that individuals contribute to local

sport. We're delighted to be the sponsor of this award and feel that it's a perfect fit for the Robinsons brand."

The event will be broadcast live on BBC1 from the NEC in Birmingham on Dec 9.
