Celebrating sports volunteers

Join In and BBC Get Inspired are back on the red carpet at BBC Sports Personality of the Year to say a #BigThankYou to sports volunteers across the UK.

On Sunday 20 December, Eddie Izzard will be joined by the who's who of elite sport as they surprise volunteers by saying a #BigThankYou for their amazing work.

Last year's star callers included Tom Daley, Chris Hoy, Rory McIlroy and Paula Radcliffe and after another successful year of sport, we're expecting more big names to hit the gold phone box.

We know that volunteers are the heartbeat of your clubs and groups and we want you to be a part of this celebration of sport. Last year thousands took to social media to say a #BigThankYou – and this year you can too.

Whether it's a coach putting in the extra hours, an enthusiastic dad who makes the sandwiches or a chair balancing the books, join the nation's celebration of volunteers in sport on social media on 20 December to say a #BigThankYou for their hard work.
