Breakfast Clubs are completely FREE…. And will always remain free!
There are no fees or subs and NOT here to make money for any organisation/business.
It all started at a Garage, when three friends used to meet on a Saturday morning, they used to get together and have a morning butty and banter.
Then one day a Sapper brought a BV206 military tracked vehicle in for some work doing to it, as he was looking for someone who knew about military vehicles. Once the vehicle was there it generated interest in mates getting together, lads from an old army unit whilst looking at the tracked vehicle.
Then after that, it started by word of mouth, first to someone in Newcastle who was visiting Hull, then it grew from there.
Since the start of the first Butty & Banter Club it has grown worldwide, with clubs in multiple countries.
Original Breakfast Club Values
We run the CIC with the "Original Breakfast Club Values" run "By Veterans For Veterans".
The CIC is umbrella organisation for the Breakfast Clubs with no fee's or sub's paid, funds raised will go back into veterans charities.
All funds are fully accountable and since it is run By Veterans For Veterans the costs are small, so more funds can go back to helping veterans.
The CIC is run by veterans and in line with CIC Regulations which includes assett lock rules.
There are no "official" or "unofficial" Breakfast Clubs since they are run autonomously which is one of the fundamental principles. Breakfast Clubs are here to help Veterans gain the help/support they require. (This is contrary to what other people/organisations are stating).
Social Media Groups
Social Media Groups are run by their members/admins, no person other then those who attend the club should be an admin (unless otherwise asked to be).
Social Media Banners can be anything, it does not have to be the default banner we provide.
How the Social Media Group/Breakfast Club is run, is up to it's members/admins. There should be no interference from anyone who does not attend the Breakfast Club.
The CIC is here to advertise and help when and if needed to point veterans to their nearest club or further help when and if required.
Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Clubs Notice
We are in now way associated to the .net website or the organisation who owns it, they are having problems with financies/Companies House. We have not and will not carry any orders which have been placed with that organisation (Company No. 10251007). Their suppliers have their own reason to refuse to provide a service to them (Company No. 10251007) and that is and has nothing to do with this organsiation (Company No. 11161286). At this moment in time the other organisation "DOES NOT" own any Logo/Trademark even though it has been falsely registered under their name which has been reported to the correct authorities.
There are currently legal proceedings against a director of Company No 10251007. Having heard from from the Intellectual Property Office, they have confirmed that the OFFICIAL, ARMED FORCES & VETERANS BREAKFAST CLUBS Logo was transfered in the correct manner with the full knowledge of the Director (Company No. 10251007). There was no criminal offence committed during this process of transfering the Logo and the appeal (by the Director, Company No. 10251007) for the Logo rectitication has been dismissed. Humberside Police closed the case in August 2019, when they found that no crime had being committed either.
What is a CIC?
A Community Interest Company (CIC) is a type of company introduced by the United Kingdom government in 2005 under the Companies (Audit, Investigations and Community Enterprise) Act 2004, designed for social enterprises that want to use their profits and assets for the public good.
A community interest company is a business with primary social objectives whose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community, rather than being driven by the need to maximise profit for shareholders and owners.
CIC's tackle a wide range of social and environmental issues and operate in all parts of the economy. By using business solutions to achieve public good, it is believed that CIC's have a distinct and valuable role to play in helping create a strong, sustainable and socially inclusive economy.
