CoBDO® and the Charities Commission
The Council of British Druid Orders® (CoBDO), would like to make the following statement, in the wake of recent news that the Druid Network has gained charitable status.
CoBDO recently investigated the parameters surrounding registration with the Charities Commission for itself.
CoBDO subsequently withdrew its own application for charitable status, on learning that the only "recognition" of religious practices offered by the Charities Commission, consisted of tax free advantage on income of above £5.000.
CoBDO does not have an income itself, and has little sympathy with the practice of charging money for druidry. We are a spiritual organization, not a commercial one, and will continue to seek religious recognition for druidry through public events and ceremonies.
