British Ambassador's embéčko for sale

Proceeds will go to charity

After much soul-searching, I have decided that my beloved embéčko (Škoda 1000 MB / Wikipedia) belongs here in the Czech Republic where it has spent the first 50 years of its life. So, hard though it is to part with it, I would like to auction it to raise money for one of my favorite charities Sue Ryder. This is a British charity which has been providing hospice care and assistance to those in need in the Czech Republic, and support to their families, since 1998.


If you are interested, please send your bid by e-mail to prague.reception@fco.gov.uk by 12:00 (noon) on Wednesday 10 January. The car will go to whoever enters the highest bid, and the proceeds will go to Domov Sue Ryder, z.ú., in Prague. If you have any questions before then, we will try to answer them. The floor price is 30 000 Kč.

I want my dear embéčko to go to a good home. So please only bid if you will look after it well.

Please join me in supporting Sue Ryder!

British Ambassador to the Czech Republic
