Carlisle Scout Leader Recognised

14 February 2015

Eddie Ward

Explorer Scout leader Eddie Ward from Carlisle has been recognised in the current round of Halifax Giving Extra Awards.

Nominated by one of the Explorer Scout parents for his hard work and dedication in setting up and running the Ayers Explorer Scout Unit in Reivers Eddie is also a the Deputy District Commissioner for Reivers District and General Manger of Ratlingate Campsite just outside of Carlisle.

As well as these local roles Eddie is active in many other areas of Scouting from leading the county media team to being a mentor on the national Community Impact Group. His volunteering often sees him travelling either within the region or to Gilwell and has even seen him travel to Tunisia to help deliver media training.

Eddie says “It was an honour to be nominated for a Halifax Giving Extra Award, I certainly didn’t expect to be one of the 67 local winners! […] As a working husband with two young children I would especially like to thank my family for their support.”
