Richard Walton

Richard Walton

Chairman of Trustees

Being the parent of an adult with learning disabilities and having known several SCB service users for over 30 years inspired me to become a trustee.

Professionally, I was a senior manager with a specialization in marketing before retirement.

Outside of my trustee duties, I am also a trustee of the Market Drayton Mencap Club, edit a village magazine, and enjoy church bell ringing.

As Chairman of Trustees, my goal is to foster a collaborative environment where we challenge one another to continually improve SCB and make it the best it can be.

Trustee

After considering it for some time, the chairman suggested that I could bring a fresh perspective to the board. Having been closely involved with SCB for 25 years through our business, Crewe Orlando, I felt compelled to support the charity’s fantastic work. 

Professionally, I bring skills from being a business owner and former teacher. Outside of trustee duties, I love reading, walking my dog, and spending time with my teenage daughters. 

My aspiration is to help SCB grow and flourish, making it accessible to as many people as possible. 

As a newer trustee, I feel encouraged to share ideas and pose challenging questions, fostering an environment of open-mindedness and innovation among the trustees.

Trustee

I was inspired to become a trustee for SCB after witnessing firsthand how individuals develop through attending, particularly my son, who has been a part of SCB for over 10 years. 

With over 30 years of experience as a purchasing manager in the food industry, I bring a wealth of professional knowledge to the role. 

Now retired, I spend my leisure time attending Everton football matches as a season ticket holder and playing golf in the summer.

As a member of the Cheshire East Learning Disability Partnership Board, I work to connect with key people to improve the lives of those with disabilities. 

Our team of five trustees collaborates closely, meeting regularly and valuing each other’s opinions. Since becoming a trustee in 2020, I have seen SCB grow and thrive, and I am confident in our continued success and positive impact on the community.

Trustee

I became a trustee for SCB after seeing its positive impact on a family friend’s life, offering structure and social normalisation. 

For their family, SCB provided peace of mind and pride, knowing their loved one was in a safe and respectful environment. Since 2015, I’ve connected with many service users and their families, witnessing the benefits of the SCB community.

As a local businessperson and accountant, I use my skills and connections to support SCB. 

I care deeply about those marginalised by society and work to promote SCB through my business contacts. Outside of trustee duties, I live in Crewe with my spouse and have two adult daughters. 

I enjoy walking my dog in the countryside, following Crewe Alexandra Football Club, and have been a season ticket holder for many years.

Trustee

I have had a long-standing interest in SCB, inspired by my uncle Ian, who attended SCB for nearly 20 years. 

My family has been involved in fundraising since the charity’s inception, and my father was an early Trustee. 

Professionally, I have extensive experience in the care sector, having worked in and managed care services since 2007. 

Currently, I am a Global Professional Instructor at CPI, focusing on de-escalation training. 

Outside of work, I enjoy sports, travelling, and spending time with my rescue dog, Gizmo, and my cat, Lila. 

I am passionate about supporting SCB’s mission and excited about our future.
