Hundreds of local schoolchildren turned out to cheer him on his way
Eddie Birchall, 48, is a youth worker and boxing coach from Newbury Community Centre in Farnworth, Bolton, and has worked as a volunteer for 20 years.
The torch arrived in Chorley, Lancashire, before moving on to Croston. Torchbearer Francesca Wheatley from Whalley said she was "a bit nervous" ahead of her turn with the torch.

Norman Wells, 91, carried the Olympic flame between Burscough and Ormskirk. He has been involved in sport since 1946 when he founded the Liverpool Trojans baseball club .
Thousands of people gathered along Sefton coast to welcome the torch carried by Francis Meadows.
The torch passed through Crosby in Sefton before heading to St Helens and Knowsley on its way to Liverpool.
Before the flame left Crosby, torchbearer Jessica Wade took it to sculptor Antony Gormley's "Another Place" on the beach.
Kimberley Cooper, 22, from Liverpool carried the flame on the track at Aintree Racecourse - where she met this year's Grand National winner Neptune Collonges.
The flame was taken to Knowsley Safari Park, where torchbearer Jane Campbell fed a giraffe as she completed her leg in Prescot.
The relay moved on to the centre of Liverpool with the flame spending a fair amount of time in the city. However once it had moved to Birkenhead the celebrations continued with this Zumba dance class taking place at St George's Hall
Late in the day, two celebrities carried the torch in Birkenhead. The first was former Spice Girl Mel C, who clearly really, really wanted to be there as she waved to the screaming crowds. She passed the torch on to former Olympic track cycling champion Chris Boardman, who was born down the road in Hoylake.
The flame left Birkenhead on a ferry across the River Mersey back to the centre of Liverpool. The torchbearer in charge of it was Craig Lundberg, a soldier who was blinded in an incident in Basra in 2007.
Craig lit the cauldron in front of an estimated crowd of more than 20,000 people in front of the Liver Building and live on stage told the BBC: "It's just been magical. I am just so proud to have represented Liverpool. I am so proud to be the last person in Liverpool to carry the torch."
The specators who did not have a clear view of the stage had a much better sight of the flame being lit on the big screen as they basked in the evening sunshine on the banks of Mersey to bring day 14 of the torch relay to a spectacular close.
