The Torch Trophy Trust has now closed.
In February 2019, the Torch Trophy Trust closed. For over fifty years we provided recognition and support to volunteers in sport and would like to express our gratitude to everyone involved in the Trust since 1962. We would like to say a deep thank you to so many members of the Royal Family, to sporting legends, to loyal trustees and to all those at the grassroots of sport who have encouraged and helped us in in our story over these years.
The Torch Trophy Trust archives are now held at Loughborough University.
