After his appointment as Chairman of Special Olympics GB, Murton said: "My vision is to take the organisation forward from not only being a respected charity and GB’s largest provider of sports training to people with a learning disability, but to be recognised as one of the nation’s premier charities so that our athletes, volunteers and the organisation may reap the benefits that increased profile, support and funding will bring… and so that we can offer opportunity, support and achievement to many more people with a learning disability in GB."
