The Aloud Charity
Registered Charity Number: 1147922
The Aloud Charity devises, manages and delivers the activity of Only Boys Aloud and Only Kids Aloud. Our mission is to engage each generation of young people across Wales with the power of choral singing and, through this, promote self-belief, confidence, encourage aspiration, build skills and develop communities.
Only Boys Aloud is the largest initiative of the Charity and, since it began in 2010, has made a great impact on the lives of its young singers. OBA engages with nearly 200 13-19 year-old boys each week through the delivery of 14 regional choirs across Wales, operating in locations which cover 9/10 most deprived communities in Wales. The scheme is fully inclusive, with no fees to be a member and no auditions.
“OBA has been life changing for me. It has given me a direction in life and has given me the confidence to believe in myself and realise nothing is impossible and there are opportunities out there for every kind of person from all types of backgrounds.”
Not only do the choirs meet each week to rehearse and socialise, but OBA provides the boys with transformational experiences through performances at both local and national events.
A choir and scheme the size of OBA comes with a large price tag attached but we are determined that it should remain accessible to all regardless of personal circumstances.
With the cost of running the 14 regional choirs standing at nearly £4,000 each week in addition to the huge costs associated with getting the boys to performances, we need your help to keep the choirs going.
Please help us continue to makie a positive difference to the lives of teenage boys through making a donation.
