New charity British Glass Foundation launched

At long last, the launch of the British Glass Foundation charity has been made public. The Foundation's aims are to protect the glass heritage of Britain - initially aimed at protecting the collection housed at the threatened Broadfield House Glass Museum in Dudley, West Midlands, it is to be hoped that it will encompass glass heritage throughout the country thus ensuring protection for collections in other repositories which may be under threat.

The Glass Message Board has been supporting the save Broadfield House campaign since its inception, and has just had the announcement added to its Glass News forum along with an invitation for glass lovers everywhere to support the British Glass Foundation and its aims.
