On 24th September 2018 various members of the various breakfast clubs were afforded the opportunity of tickets to see the highly acclaimed ballet, Lest We Forget at the Sadler’s Wells Theatre by Lt Col Gary Tait MBE.
On Friday 7 September 2018 members of various Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Clubs were invited to attend breakfast at the Royal Hospital Chelsea in the esteemed company of the Chelsea Pensioners and the Secretary of State for Defence, Gavin Williamson MP.
Breakfast Clubs are FREE to attend…. And will remain free!
Breakfast Clubs exist to help veterans, and often currently serving Armed Forces personnel, by meeting face to face, in a relaxed, safe and social environment. We still have the original values "By Veterans For Veterans" and "for the Benefit of Veterans", full accountability and transparency. All Breakfast Clubs are run autonomously and by their members for the benefit of their members not the selected few.
The AFVBC, is a not for profit organisation (CIC) and any surplus funds are reinvested into the veterans community. This is why the AFVBC is run "By Veterans For Veterans".
