Our Team



Scout Leader

Born in the 50’s and having raised 3 boys and been an active Scout Leader for over 40 years, Richard grew up within a supportive, large family environment.

“I had a great dad and supportive friends, with teachers and Scout Leaders, to inspire and encourage me. Many boys do not have the same positive experience that I had growing up, so mentoring for Lads Need Dads enables me to be that arm of support and role model that I was fortunate enough as a young man, to experience.”

Richard has a life-long passion for challenging, adventurous activities and the outdoors.
