Logan McKerrow, 7, with a replica of the Olympic torch he made. Chard, Somerset. See SWNS story SWTORCH; A six-year-old boy has raised more than £30,000 for charity after his paper Olympic torch was sold 60 times on eBay and the proceeds donated by the buyers. Enterprising Logan McKerrow made his model at school and decided to launch an ‘auction relay’ to raise money for good causes. He first sold it for £21 and the buyer immediately re-listed it and sold it for £27. Over the last 18 months the torch has travelled 21,000 miles to buyers all over the world including St Lucia, Luxemborg and Bulgaria.
