An award for one of our founders
November 2015 - An award for one of our founders
On 4th November 2015 Barbara Peacock received a presentation from Katarína Hobbs, the Director of Czech Tourism U.K. and Ireland. This took place during the World Travel Market in Excel London.
The life achievement award is given to a person who has dedicated much of his/her time and energy to the Czech Republic. A previous recipient of the award is Lady Milena Grenfell-Baines, who arrived in the U.K. on one of Sir Nicholas Winton's trains in 1939. The award was given in recognition of Barbara Peacock's work in bringing many people to see the art treasures of the Czech Republic, and for founding The Friends with Ian Kennaway in 2007.
