Here is an Auction for my London 2012 Olympic Torch.

I'm a Torch Bearer on July 11th and will dispatch the Torch by July 16th
 or you can collect from me after i've participated in the relay on the 11th July.


I was chosen to be a torch bearer because of the money I've raised for various charities,
many of them who have helped my son who has Cerebral Palsy.

75% of the Buy it Now price will go to Whizz Kidz, an amazing charity who help kids who are wheelchair users.
I ran the London Marathon for them this year.
Have a look at their website for more info about them.
www.whizz-kidz.org.uk

 Another £10000 of the Buy it Now Price will go toward buying an Incubator for the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester. My son was looked after there after he was born 10 weeks Prem. I pledged to raise enough money to buy an incubator for them. I've raised about £9000 so far.

The rest of the money will help us with my son's home life (ground floor living, wet room etc)

Free postage within the UK, posting over sea please message me for so i can find out prices for you.

Please message me for payment details and information.

Any Questions please message me.

Thanks for looking at a great opportunity to help 2 great causes
and own a fantastic piece of Olympic Memorabilia,


Heres some torch info (from the 2012 website)

The Torch was designed by east Londoners Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, who won the opportunity through a competitive tender run by the London 2012 Organising Committee and the Design Council.

Basildon-based product engineers Tecosim, Birmingham-based LPG Gas specialists and manufacturers, Bullfinch and Coventry manufacturers Premier Sheet Metal have taken the design and moved it into mass production.

In April 2012 the Torch was recognised as the Design of the Year at an awards ceremony hosted by the Design Museum.

Design: an inspirational 8,000

The Torch is made up of an inner and an outer aluminium alloy skin, held in place by a cast top piece and base, perforated by 8,000 circles.

Representing the inspirational stories of the 8,000 Torchbearers who will carry the Olympic Flame, the circles which run the length of the body of the Torch also offer a unique level of transparency. You can see right to the heart of the Torch and view the burner system which will keep the Olympic Flame alive on its journey around the UK.

The circles also help ensure heat is quickly dissipated, without being conducted down the handle, and providing extra grip.

The Torch stands 800mm high.

The Torch is being tested in BMW’s climatic testing facility in Munich to make sure it can withstand all weather conditions. BMW is a Supporting Partner of the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay.

Shape: the power of '3'

The triangular-shaped Torch was inspired by a series of 'threes' that are found in the history of the Olympic Games and the vision for the Olympic Movement:

Weight: as light as possible

  • The three Olympic values of respect, excellence and friendship;
  • The three words that make the Olympic motto – faster, higher, stronger; 
  • The fact that the UK has hosted the Olympic Games in 1908, 1948 and will host them for the third time in 2012; and
  • The vision for the London 2012 Olympic Games to combine three bodies of work – sport, education and culture.

More than half of the London 2012 Torchbearers are expected to be young people aged as young as 12, so the designers aimed to make the Torch as light as possible.

It is made from an special aluminium alloy developed for the aerospace and automotive industry. The alloy is lightweight but strong, with excellent heat resistance. The 8,000 circles also reduce the weight of the final design, whilst ensuring strength isn’t compromised. The Torch weighs 800 grams.

Colour: gold

The gold colour embraces the qualities of the Olympic Flame – the brightness and the warmth of the light that it shines.
