Volunteer Spotlight: Ellen Wright

Name: Ellen Wright

How long have you been a volunteer?
Since 2006.

What areas do you work in/what sort of tasks do you do as a volunteer?
Plays keyboards and brings dessert (her famous Ellen Bars) to weekly High Tea.

Why did you decide to become a volunteer?
I had a friend at my parish who was a volunteer here. When I retired she said I should volunteer here because she said that I would never meet nicer people. I thought, ‘What the heck?’ So I did.

Ellen plays keyboards at our weekly teas.
What is your favorite part about volunteering?
The people that are here.

What is one of your favorite stories or memories from volunteering?
It’s just like the four of us [who do tea] are like a little family, and Syndie’s so great, and anybody I’ve met has just been really nice.

One time I had to accompany the choir at an event…so that made a nervous wreck out of me. But it was really nice.
