Evelyn Speak


Evelyn joined the team as a volunteer in 2018 after retiring from a long career in Primary school teaching. After seeing Christians in Schools in action, once retired, she decided she wanted to help with this valuable work. She enjoys being back in the classroom with someone else in charge. She tries to keep fit by taking part in Park Runs and enjoys having time to catch up with her family and pursuing her hobbies - acapella choir, playing Ukulele badly, and Lino Printing.
