Torch Trophy Trust

The Torch Trophy Trust is a charity whose main aims are to reward volunteers in sport and recreation and to recognise and support their endeavours.

The Torch Trophy Trust has its origins in the 1948 Olympics which were held in London.

Since the Berlin Olympic Games a torch relay has been organised from Athens to the Host City and following the 1948 Games, the Torch designed for the last leg of the relay into Wembley Stadium was presented to the Trust.

For the Torch Trophy Trust, the flaming torch symbolises its dedication to helping and recognising the efforts of volunteers in sport.

The Trust is entirely run by volunteers and the secretariat for the Trust is provided by the Sport and Recreation Alliance.
