UK Registered Charity Number 1112258 (BFOV-CT)

Following a decision of an annual meeting held at Chirk in 2004 the BFOV applied for formal recognition as a UK-Registered Charity. An application was made and registration was duly granted in October 2005. In late December 2005 the association opened a new, charity account with the Nationwide, and in 2010 a further charity account was opened with Barclays Plc.
