Irene Gray – Development Assistant
For many years Irene worked for ICI NZ until she ventured out on her own and set up The Heritage Shop where she imported jewellery, porcelain, music and giftware form England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. After the many hours and challenges of retailing, Irene decided to make the move to Fundraising and Volunteer management, and this she has done for several organisations.
Irene's many years of involvement in Guiding (both locally and nationally) also led to working with other youth organisations. Music also features prominently and she was a regular voice on several radio stations.
Currently Irene runs a Scottish Country Dancing group (for an older age group), plays in the Incredible Ceilidh Band and is an Elder in her church.
