We had the wonderful opportunity to present the Czech National Trust, our mission, activities and projects as part of a festive evening reception which took place on May 17, 2017, at the Residence of the Austrian Ambassador to the Czech Republic in Prague. The event was opened and hosted by Alexander Grubmayr, Austrian Abassador to the Czech Republic.
As many as 80 guests have attended the evening reception, which was also a fund-raising event. The guests have made donations and pledges amounting to the total of 400 000 CZK which will be used for our pilot project in Zdislavice, for creation of a nature trail and for our Prague projects.
Among the reception guests were Jan Thompson, British Ambassador to the Czech Republic, Catherine Leonard, Secretary General of the International National Trusts Organisation (INTO), and almost all our main donors and supporters: Eduard Kučera (Avast), Magdalena Součková (Ernst&Young), Milan Šimonovský (Sigma), Eliška Kaplický (Chair of the Prague Culture and Monument Care Department), and many other CNT volunteers and friends.
