A Tribute to Judy Churchill

 

It was with great sadness that we learnt that Judy Churchill passed away on 17th  March.

Judy was a founding member of Outward Bound Monaco and its General Secretary for 15 years. It was in large part due to her hard work and determination that the association was formed in 2004. In the early days of the association, Judy organised local courses and events such as the tree planting at Piera Cave. She continued to serve on the committee until the end of 2019 and throughout her time as a committee member she was a fantastic fundraiser for the Association. In particular, Judy devoted much time and effort to organising fundraising events such as the Palace dinners in the presence of our patron, Prince Albert. She remained an enthusiastic supporter of Outward Bound at all times and the Association will always be grateful to her and count itself as fortunate to have had Judy as a committee member for so many years.

A Letter from our President

 
March 2021
 
 
Dear students, parents, sponsors and members,
 
I am writing to let you know that Outward Bound UK has reluctantly decided that it cannot accept students from outside the UK on its summer courses in 2021. A copy of their message to non-UK students is below.
 
Clearly this is not the news I was hoping to send to you. Despite the fact that we have been unable to hold any events during the last year, we have been both amazed and delighted by the number of enquiries and provisional bookings we have already received for 2021. We are all disappointed that students from Monaco will not have the opportunity to challenge themselves on an Outward Bound course this year. Rest assured that we will do everything we can to make sure that students from this area are able to take part in Outward Bound courses next year. 
 
In the meantime, we hope to be able to organise an event in Monaco later this year for past and prospective students. Of course, all plans are subject to COVID restrictions, but we feel it is important to get the students together if we possibly can.
 
And finally, a gentle reminder. We appreciate that these are difficult times for everyone and we are grateful for all your support. We have been unable to organise any fundraising events during the past year and are more dependent than ever on the generosity of our members. Please consider donating 50 euros to Outward Bound Monaco by renewing your membership on this website or by contacting Vanessa.
 
Thank you and stay safe and healthy.
 
Yours sincerely
 
 
Sarah O’Connor
President
 
 
Message from Outward Bound UK:
With the continued uncertainty surrounding the lifting of international travel restrictions to and from the UK, we have taken the extremely difficult decision to not accept any bookings from young people travelling into the UK for an Outward Bound Summer Adventure.
 
We understand this will be disappointing to you, but hope you will understand this decision is not taken lightly. Our intention is that in taking the decision now it will allow you plenty of notice to make alternative plans.
 
As a UK charity we will continue to focus on how we can best support as many young people as possible from within the UK to take part in adventures, should restrictions enable.
 
We greatly value your support which for many of you will have been over many years and generations.
 
Outward Bound is 80 years old this year and we are doing everything we can to ensure we continue to support young people in the future.
