We’re delighted to say that not only has Cliff Garland been nominated for the BBC West “Get Inspired” Unsung Hero award for 2015, he has actually won it. We believe that film taken on Sunday of the presentation will be shown on Points West tonight (Tuesday) between 6.30pm and 7pm.
The BBC Get Inspired Unsung Hero award has been running since 2003, and recognises the remarkable achievements of people, like Cliff, throughout the UK.
Following the nomination period panels met in each of the BBC’s 15 Nations and English Regions and a winner from each was chosen. Cliff will be attending the Sports Personality Award ceremony in Belfast in December.
The overall winner will come from those 15 and will be announced on the night of the BBC Sports Personality of the Year programme.
More information and reaction when we get it.
