The Trophies

The Trophies

Trophies were presented over the years to YHA clubs, Schools, Scouts and other organisations. As the years went on the trophies had to be enlarged. Participants who had achieved ten or twenty 'Tanners' were awarded individual trophies. The most treasured individual trophies were those recording the award of the "Alan Blatchford" trophy, a model of the tower on Leith Hill which the recipient held for a year. That trophy was awarded by the committee in specific memory of the event founder.
