THE BBC is celebrating the success of sports stars in the West Midlands with an award ceremony at the National Motorcycle Museum, Solihull on December 7 and Robinsons, sponsors of the BBC Unsung Hero award, are inviting four lucky readers and their guests the chance to go along.

The ceremony, which precedes the annual BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards in Liverpool in December, will recognise sporting achievement and excellence across the West Midlands.

Robinsons are giving you the chance to attend this exciting evening, and honour individuals from the world of sport, including nominees for the BBC Sports Unsung Hero Award 2008.

This special award, proudly supported by Robinsons, recognises and rewards local volunteers who have made a difference to their community through grassroots sport, whether it's through preparing facilities, coaching juniors, running local sports leagues or working behind the scenes.

Bursaries of up to £2,500, courtesy of Robinsons, are available to winners of the BBC Unsung Hero award in each region to help them with their work in sport.

Last year's West Midland's Unsung Hero 2007 winner was Brian Buck of Sandwell.

A bit about the night, and Robinsons involvement:

The evening starts with welcome drinks, followed by a three course meal. The awards will then follow, before a band for the rest of the evening.

It promises to be a great night out and will give winners the chance to mingle with some of the region's sporting heroes as well as attend an event that is not generally open to the public.

To be in with a chance of winning one of four invitations for two to the West Midlands Sports Awards then send an e-mail entitled Sports Awards Competition with the answer to the following question, along with your name, address and telephone number, to solihull_news@mrn.co.uk.
