8,000 people, many of whom have been chosen for their contribution to their communities, will get to carry torches as part of the olympic torch relay. If they want to keep them as a memento, it will come at a price. It will cost them £215 for the torch plus another £40 for a stand.
Some feel that's a lot of money to be charging people who've been nominated as community heroes. Meanwhile, torchbearers who are sponsored by large companies like Coca Cola will get their torches for free.
One Cornish torchbearer who's already forked out for his torch is Auxiliary Coastguard Dave Jackson. Dave was nominated for his rescue work. He'll be one of the first to carry an olympic torch as they make their way through Cornwall on the first day of the relay.**
But LOCOG, the olympic organiser, has told us the torches actually cost £495 pounds to make so they're being offered at less than half price. It says it wanted to make sure the torches were affordable for all 8,000 torchbearers like Dave. But what's affordable for one may not be affordable for all.
