First guests love our new-look holiday centre! Picture

The first holiday guests with sight loss have been bowled over by the renovations at Torch Holiday & Retreat Centre.

‘I love the lounge with the new bright blue carpet…’

‘I like the fact that there are dado rails everywhere to follow, everything is tactile so you don’t get lost…’

‘The bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms are lovely, very easy to get into, especially for wheelchair users…’

‘The new mattresses are amazing…’

‘You get an even warmer welcome than before…’

TORCH TRUST’s aims can be summarised as enabling people with sight loss to discover Christian faith and lead fulfilling Christian lives.

Towards this end we provide Christian resources and activities for blind and partially sighted people worldwide. Our services are offered to all who experience sight loss, of all faiths or none, and including those with sight loss who have other disabilities.

Among our services, Torch provides Christian literature, including a free lending library and a range of magazines, in various accessible formats. We also promote Christian fellowship through 110 local Groups across the UK. Torch also runs a varied programme of holidays at our own holiday centre and at other venues around the UK and abroad. Our international arm involves Torch working in partnership with others and being involved in various projects, especially in Malawi which in turn serves the needs of blind and partially sighted people in various other African countries.

Torch Trust has a driving vision for people with sight loss, wherever in the world they may live. Our seven-fold charter is that every blind or partially sighted person may have the opportunity to:

  • Explore Christian faith and discover Jesus
  • Grow as a Christian
  • Enjoy a fulfilling devotional life
  • Access Christian activities and resources they need
  • Join a church of their choice
  • Develop their invaluable God-given gifting
  • Contribute to the life of the church
