The softer side of the Harborne local; The King’s Head ‘give back’ in 2016
The softer side of the Harborne local; The King's Head ‘give back' in 2016
When thinking about pubs, bars and venues that boast some of the best nights out in the area on a Friday and Saturday night, the first thing that comes to mind is something quite the opposite to ‘charity'. However, on the outskirts of Harborne is a popular watering hole looking to make a difference to causes in their community in 2016, with the help of their loyal locals of course.
This year The King's Head in Harborne has pledged to work with as many local charities as possible after hosting several successful charity nights since the beginning of 2016 - so far the King's Head team has raised over £600 for notable local causes. Staff from The King's Head hope to see their locals get involved with their charitable events throughout the year. Since January the Birmingham based pub, listed in many food guides as a ‘go to gastro-pub' in the city, have held events for The Warley Woods, Birmingham St. Mary's Hospice, St Albans Community Association and Birmingham Dogs home through their Networking events, monthly charity pub quizzes and most recently, their ‘Doggy Food Drive'.
With more events lined up, they are hoping to be able to give a lot more throughout the year to help encourage donations and spread the word about the great things that charities in their community do for the locals of Harborne and Birmingham.
Jo Scone Marketing Manager at The King's Head said, "We are a really close knit team here at The King's Head, and we all know how important the local community is to this venue. Our venue has always been a key figure in the Harborne area, ever since it was built as The King's Head Coaching Station in the early 1900's. Giving back to charities in our community is a given - what we really want to say by committing this year to raising the awareness of our chosen charities is a massive ‘Thank you' to those who have helped make us who we are today."
The King's Head aren't stopping there - Their next charity events are in support of: the Queen Alexandra College with a charity quiz on the 24th April and Action on Hearing Loss with another charity quiz on the 28th May. The team hope that their popular historic venue will become the ‘go to' place for locals to feel involved in their community, and that locals will take the opportunity to give to worthy charities throughout the year.
