Incorporating: Eloquence Languages and Translations

10 years ago Judy Churchill (General Secretary)and Dr Michael Peagram (President) mapped out a route for setting up Outward Bound Monaco. Said Judy: "Those early days involved a lot of hard work, meetings in London and Monaco, reconnaissance trips to the mountains of the Mercantour to test activities, seeking out a local centre in Cap d'Ail, to house our participants, contending with mountains of bureaucracy and limitations.There was the unforgettable 6 months of organising the very first Outward Bound UK fund raiser in Monaco with Chairman of the trustees HRH the Duke of York (first time in Monaco) and HSH Prince Albert of Monaco agreeing to jointly patronise the fledgling association. 10 years down the line we have sent over 200 young people to the UK centres and hosted 7 OB courses in Monaco. The last couple of years have been tough for fund raising but following a sumptuous fund raising dinner hosted by HRH The Duke of York at Windsor castle, attended by TSHs Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco and a glittering performance by Shirley Bassey, we were able to raise a significant amount of funds which will allow us to pursue our mission for the foreseeable future."

Our 10 th anniversary party was supported by guest of honour Grigor Dimitrov who inspired our Outward Bounders to continue pursuing their goals to achieve the highest level of success. Judy added: "we now have a great committee who are all pulling together to support the charity - a far cry from the early days when it was really a two-man show!"
