The nomination process for the London 2012 Torchbearers is now open for applications. Charities wishing to recognise the efforts of staff and volunteers are encouraged to apply.

The London 2012 Torchbearers will be responsible for carrying the Olympic flame the length and breadth of the country. It starts its journey from Land's End on 19 May 2012 and will travel to within an hour of 95 per cent of people in the UK.

In total, 8,000 torchbearers are required, with an average of 110 people per day carrying the flame.

The London2012 Organising Committee (Locog) has dedicated 2,012 torchbearer places for public nominations. It is looking for "truly incredible individuals whose personal stories will inspire millions of people watching the Olympic Torch Relay." These may be people who have made a difference in their local community or has "shown what it means to be a real friend".

Sebastian Coe, Chair of LOCOG said: "Carrying the Olympic Flame is an incredible honour and from today people have the opportunity to reward someone inspirational by nominating them to be part of this historic event. This is a great occasion to give someone you know, who has made a difference and who deserves recognition, their moment to shine."

The deadline for making nominations is 11.59pm on Wednesday 29 June 2011. To find out more information, visit www.london2012.com
