Sarah Walton

Business Manager


Hi, my name is Sarah Walton and I am the Director of Business at Active Lancashire. I joined Active Lancashire in December 2009 and my first task was to assist in the transition of Active Lancashire to become a limited company in 2010.

My background has been focused in Business Management; I have worked as the Business Manager in the Rural Business Centre at Myerscough College. Prior to that I worked for Sainsbury’s Supermarkets Ltd as a Senior Manager in Stores across the North West.

The key part of my role is focused on financial planning and control and also contract management of the many grants and agreements we have in place with partners and funders such as Sport England. I am also responsible for the day to day running of the office and support the team to embed Quality Improvement Systems across the organisation.

I am sure the rest of the team would agree that I am probably the least Sporty person at LSP! The team have tried on many occasions to engage me in sport’s such as Rounder’s and Table Tennis but my appauling hand to eye co-ordination skills do limit my performance as well as causing lots of laughter in the team!

For all things finance and grants, please contact me!
