How do I register as a member of the Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs?
There is no registration for membership, each club is run autonomously and by their members for the benefit of their members. At the moment the only registration is for Breakfast Clubs, not their members. We take members' security seriously, so do not hold any details for members then they cannot be compromised or gained access to by any third party then the veterans can supply the information to whom they wish to have it. For more information visit our news page about registration
Can I use the Original Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs Logo/Trademark?
Since the Logo is owned by the Official and Original Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs (afvbc.com), it can be used for none commercial use such as wreaths etc, to use the logo all that is needed, is the register of your Breakfast Club. We have launched the website shop where members will be able to purchase a wide range of AFVBC-branded products when needed.
Are both the Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs (AFVBCs) Linked?
There are two Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Clubs (AFVBC's) but they are not linked in any way, shape, or form, this is because the afvbc.com is set up correctly. All funds are accounted for and we have receipts for everything, no single person has access to any funds, and all decisions are made by the admin team.
Why "By Veterans For Veterans"?
Since the Original Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs (afvbc.com) is run "by veterans for veterans" it allows more funds to go to veterans charities. We have a Community Bank Account. This bank account allows us to run it for free and if the Bank thinks anyone is being paid they will change the bank account so we have to pay fees.
So, if a CIC is paying banking fees, then questions need to be asked why (is someone being paid? Why are funds being taken away from veterans?)
Who is Paid?
NONE of the Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs admin team are paid or claim expenses, they offer their services and time for free. The CIC does have to pay organisations such as Companies House (confirmation statements) and suppliers who provide services/products for us to run our online shop.
How do I get my Breakfast Club Listed on the Directory?
Can I be listed with .com and .net/.world?
The Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs (afvbc.com) DO NOT have a problem with listing clubs that are also registered on .net/.world, it is the .net/.world Directors/Admins who have a problem with it. Once you are registered with .com you may find .net/.world remove your club and show there is no club in the area. This has been done to many clubs who have continued to be listed with us and asked .net/.world to remove all information about their town/city completely from .net/.world website.
Why have I been told the Original Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs Logo/Trademark is defunct?
The person/organisation who told you the Original Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Clubs Logo/Trademark is defunct is trying to mislead veterans, it is the same as being told there are official and unofficial Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs. Since all clubs are run autonomously the aim of all Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs is to support and help veterans. Knowingly giving out false/confusing information to veterans is hindering the support/help offered to veterans, especially when there is no evidence to support that information.
What happens to the funds that are raised from the sales of the merchandise?
The funds raised are kept to a minimum, they are used to keep the website running (Website Hosting) and also to help pay for the payments required by Companies House, these fees are mandatory and must be paid when submitting accounts on a yearly basis. If you look at Companies House, you can see we have submitted accounts since the company was formed. We have not and will not submit dormant accounts whilst we are still trading as some organisations have done. Any excess funds raised will go to purchase merchandise and event insurance so our clubs can attend events in their area.
How come there are two Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs (AFVBC's)?
There are two AFVBCs because after there were financial difficulties (within afvbc.net/.world) which the Director of AFVBC.net/.world was told about, he did nothing about it or try to protect veteran's funds. This has led to the .net/.world organisation submitting dormant accounts to Companies House for a number of years, stating they were not trading. The Director of afvbc.net/.world then went on to make numerous false allegations to government organisations. Which were found to be false and malicious. These allegations continue to be made but no evidence has ever been supplied to support them.
We do however have evidence to support what we say and the reasons for there being two AFVBCs, we suggest before people believe what they are being told ask for the supporting evidence !!
"Part of Email from Humberside Police"
"Whilst there is a smokescreen of financial information in the summary emanating from the breakdown of a business which has been poorly run, the offence boils down to an allegation of theft of a trademark. I have discussed the case in length with the OIC and taken advice from the Force legal department. The IPO have documentation from both parties and will make a decision if their procedure has been followed correctly to transfer the Trademark. The complainant has not provided any admissible documentary evidence to support any allegation of theft. The transfer form does not appear to have been tampered with and there is no evidence of fraud."
