The Wenlock Box Company, a member of the BFM, was pleased to have been selected by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games to hand craft the presentation cases to contain the Olympic & Paralympic Games Victory medals.

The Wenlock Box Company was set up by Tim Barker in January 2011 and is situated near the picturesque market town of Much Wenlock. Using traditional handcrafted techniques the Company has developed a range of contemporary solid wooden storage boxes using combinations such as pine and oak. LOCOG approached the company and the presentation cases were created from cherry sourced from the South Shropshire hills.
