Magic Circle charity reappears on the Charity Commission register

Plus: Welcome to the Humane Slaughter Association and Parrots in Need

Regular readers might be interested to know that the Magic Circle Benevolent Fund, which vanished from the Charity Commission's register in the autumn, has now – hey, presto! – reappeared. More details are now visible on the commission's website, and it has become clear that it pertains to actual magicians, not the UK's top law firms.

Also newly registered is the Charity for a Sanatorium in Connection with Eton College – all well and good, but it is mysterious that it has only now registered with the commission as a charity linked to Eton itself, no less than 146 years and 13 days after being created by trust deed.

Welcome also to two charities with rather more concise names: the Humane Slaughter Association (pertaining to the slaughter of animals, to clarify) and Parrots in Need.

Finally, farewell to the Lovebuzz Project – not a German techno collective, but a music education charity – and the Meh Charitable Trust. The online Urban Dictionary says "meh" is an interjection used to imply indifference, which is presumably what this outfit fell victim to.
