BABS is a registered charity with the aim of promoting music education and the understanding of singing harmony in the barbershop style. Appointed Trustees manage and invest the funds to ensure the interest in barbershop singing is maintained into the future.

Your help is needed to ensure we can continue the work we are doing. You can also make a donation, large or small, at any time or you may consider leaving money in your will to BABS which will then aid us in our aim.

BABS does receives funds from the government through the Gift Aid programme so please do ensure you sign a Gift Aid form so that we can claim these additional funds relating to your BABS annual subscription.
