Family fun at The King’s Head to raise funds for Queen Alexandra College

On Saturday the 2nd July, here at The King’s Head we are holding our biggest event yet – The ‘Summer Social’ to raise funds for the Queen Alexandra College; a national college for people with disabilities.

The Queen Alexandra College, based in Birmingham, creates challenging learning opportunities for people with visuals impairment and other disabilities to release their potential to work and live independently. During their time at the Queen Alexandra College, learners can develop their academic and social skills, make new friends and enjoy being independent and responsible for their own decisions. The college can trace its history back to 1874, when the General Institution for the Blind was founded by Mary Badger and Elizabeth Harrold.

Our team at The King’s Head in Harborne pledged that 2016 is the year that we help the local charities around us by holding events and themed evenings at our historic venue throughout the year. We have previously helped the Birmingham Dog’s Home, The Warly Woods, Birmingham St. Mary’s Hospics and St Albans Community Association this year. With our upcoming ‘Sumer Social’ family event, the team at this popular establishment are hoping to be able to encourage families to attend the event knowing that they are helping to spread the word about the work that the Queen Alexandra College do in the local area.

Jo Scone, Marketing Manager at The King’s Head said; “The whole team are really excited about our family fun day in July – we have lots lined up for the day, including BBQ plates from £4.95 each, kids activities such as face painting, storytelling, colouring competitions, fancy dress competitions, a raffle, free balloons, party bags, giant games and more. Our main aim is to not only raise funds for the incredible work that the Queen Alexandra College does, but to also spread the word about the college itself”.

The ‘Summer Social’ will be held on Saturday, 2nd of July at The King’s Head, Harborne from 12 noon to 6pm. We hope that our popular venue will become the ‘go to’ place for locals to feel involved in the community, and that patrons will take up the opportunity to not only give to worthy charities throughout the year, but to also spend quality time with their family at the free event next month.
