        Join us on a Holiday or an Event in 2023

        PUBLISHED - 23rd November 2022

        After the success of our holiday programme this year, we are very pleased to launch our holiday programme and events for 2023.

        This year we will be including a new holiday venue and a two–day retreat. As our holidays were so popular in 2022 with waiting lists for people wanting to attend, we are accepting expressions of interest for our 2023 holidays and events programme from Monday 14 November. We will then come back to you early in the New Year to let you know which holiday or event you have been successful with and you can then pay a deposit to secure your place.

        To express an interest in a holiday please call our client services team on 01858 438260 or email info@torchtrust.org

        Interested in volunteering?

        Our holidays could not happen without the help of the amazing volunteers who provide sighted practical support. This could cover a range of tasks such as guiding, driving, helping with serving refreshments and providing assistance with the different holiday activities. Please share this information with people you know who may like to serve as a holiday volunteer and join us in praying for God to provide the right volunteers for each holiday.
