The Torch Trophy Trust, founded in 1962 to recognise the many unsung heroes in sport, is launching this year’s Annual Torch Trophy Trust Awards, in five categories:

1 New young volunteer
2 “Enabler” in mainstream activity
3 Outstanding service
4 Contribution to inclusivity
5 Support for disability sport

In considering awards, the Trust is looking for:

  • Outstanding volunteers in sport and recreation who have received no national recognition; or 
  • Individuals who have given up their time in a voluntary capacity for a number of years to enable others in the community to participate; or
  • Young people who are making a significant contribution to the grass roots of your organisation’s activity on a voluntary basis.

Nominations should be sent by 9th December, using the downloadable form, to:

Torch Trophy Trust
4th Floor
Burwood House
14-16 Caxton Street

The Trust anticipates that successful nominees will receive their awards from a member of the royal family.
