WHY WE NEED SUPPORT
“OBA has given me so many opportunities. It shows that teenage boys are good and it’s not all about the bad reputation we have… If you really put your heart and soul into something you can achieve anything. Without OBA I wouldn’t be the confident person I am now.”
Only Caerphilly Boys Aloud Member
The Aloud Charity exists to make a real and lasting impact on the lives of young people throughout Wales through the power of singing together.
Only Boys Aloud is 100% inclusive and accessible. Any 13-19-year-old teenage boy, regardless of personal circumstance, can take part without having to pay a fee or audition for a place. This means that every year we have to raise a large amount of money in order to continue providing the consistent weekly activity and transformative performance opportunities that OBA delivers to its members.
We do not benefit from any year-round public funding, and therefore have to rely on the support of generous individuals, Trusts and Foundations and the support of business sponsors to meet our costs.
