News: Druidry classed as religion

The Charity Commission has recognised druidry as a religion. It is the first pagan practice to be given charitable status as a religion in the UK.

This means that organisations such as The Druid Network will be able to make the most of facilities and services only available to charities and potentially benefit from tax exemptions.

This is a big step forward for paganism and will hopefully pave the way for other pagan spiritual paths to also be recognised as religions by The Charity Commission.

The Druid Network says on its website: "This has been a long hard struggle taking over five years to complete."
