ATHLETE and volunteer Keith Binney has been nominated for his work with athletics clubs across Yorkshire.
Keith, of Burnsway, Wath, has been nominated as volunteer of the year by his friend David Haywood.
He has been involved with Barnsley Athletics Club for a number of years, where he is now a track and field mentor.
"He still races in the over 60s although he's much slower now," joked David.
"I find him a remarkable person. The hours he gives to the sport amount to hundreds but it is his willingness, encouragement and commitment which set him apart from his colleagues.
"He has suffered many injuries over the years but 14 years ago he was diagnosed with testicular and lung cancer...he eventually beat that.
"No surprises there to a remarkable devotee of the sport."

GM Wilson Solicitors Ltd opened its second office in Dodworth, Barnsley in June 2007 and since then it has gone from strength to strength with a growing team of specialist solicitors. With the added bonus of having parking just outside the door, the Dodworth branch is continuing to flourish.
GM Wilson Solicitors Ltd has been based in Wakefield city centre since the firm was established in 1975 by Mr GM Wilson, and latterly, taken over by senior partner David Brooke who has over 30 years’ experience.
The firm is proud to say the majority of its work comes from repeat business and client recommendations alongside strong working relationships with estate agents and builders in Yorkshire and the surrounding areas.
Over the last few years GM Wilson Solicitors Ltd has seen a large increase in its online conveyancing service, which brings in work from all over the country.
Mr Brooke says GM Wilson Solicitors Ltd aim is to provide a quality bespoke service to clients covering a range of core matters such as residential and commercial purchases, commercial leases, business formation, pension purchases and wills and probate, all dealt with by its specialist team of solicitors, not to mention the firm’s ever expanding litigation department.
Mr Brooke said: “Our decision to open in Barnsley proved to be a good one and we have always found the people of Barnsley to be straight forward, honest and trustworthy, who appreciate being treated in the same way, which is the way we like to do business.
“We are thrilled to be part of the Proud of Barnsley awards and to present the School of the Year award. This award recognises not only the hardwork of students, but also of all the teachers and staff who dedicate their lives to teaching children and helping them develop into well-rounded adults who will become the future of Barnsley.”
