Set up in 1962 after Commander Collins presented one of two Olympic torches from the 1948 Olympic Games, the Torch Trophy Trust (TTT) recognises and supports volunteers in sport and recreation. Each year the TTT recognises and provides bursaries to these volunteers at the annual awards, which has been supported by DAKS since its inception.
Tuesday 18th March 2014 saw the 51st annual TTT Awards, where the Princess Royal presented the awards to the winners including the TTT president, Sir Bobby Charlton, who received a lifetime achievement award. Skeleton star and winner of Team GB’s gold medal at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, Lizzy Yarnold, was also in attendance, wearing the DAKS Gladstone dress from the SS14 collection.
