Churchill Trust Medallion Dinner

It was an honour to receive my Churchill Fellowship medallion at a dinner hosted by the Victorian Churchill Fellows’ Association (VIC CFA) on Friday 22nd July in Melbourne, and share the momentous occasion with my daughter Annie Irving and close colleagues and friends from the criminal justice sector and Victorian Custody Reference Group. The medallion, designed by Churchill Fellow Wojciech Pietranik, is the formal recognition that I have completed my Fellowship trip and research report. It was an awe-inspiring evening, presenting with other Fellows, sharing highlights from our Fellowships, the incredible impact they have had and how we are continuing to achieve our project aspirations. It was a very special occasion also having the opportunity to meet the team from the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust who have supported and encouraged me along my whole fellowship journey.

    Hi Claire

    This medal was very well deserved. I enjoyed hearing about your trip and the many services you visited. The work these organisation are doing is fabulous and seeing the diversity in the ways each service are tackling the issue of crime and prison is amazing. Congratulations. I look forward to catching up with you some time soon I hope.

    • Thanks so much Judy, that is great. I agree and it will be wonderful when we see similar organisations and services across Australia. Look forward to catching up again soon too.
      Best wishes
