Stars Hnnored for Charity Work

[from contactmusic.com]

EDDIE IZZARD, DAVID WALLIAMS and SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH have been honoured by the British Scout Association for their inspirational charity work.

The trio was among 15 heroes who received special Scout badges as the traditional boys’ organisation celebrated its 103rd birthday.

The two funnymen have raised money for Britain’s Sport Relief and Comic Relief charities by taking on gruelling challenges recently; Izzard ran 1,100 miles (1,770 kilometres) across the U.K. in 51 days last summer (09) and in May (10), Walliams completed a 1,000-mile (1,609-kilometre) charity bike ride.

Other recipients of the special badge included comic James Corden and pop band Scouting For Girls.
