Birmingham pub pledges to donate 10% of World Cup takings to LGBT causes

An iconic Birmingham pub has decided to donate 10 per cent of World Cup takings to LGBT causes after considering not showing matches due to Qatar's human rights policies. The Hare and Hounds, a historic live music venue in the Kings Heath area, works closely with the community and will also take voluntary £2 donations for charities. "Yes, we're football fans, but we're also very keen supporters of that community," co-owner Adam Regan said, adding the idea came about after speaking to a number of friends.
