Carson Yeung Ka-sing, the former struggling hairstylist who rose to become the first Chinese owner of an English Premier League football team, has set up a mainland charity in the club's name. Through his Hong Kong-listed company Grandtop International Holdings, Yeung (left) has set up the Birmingham City Charity Fund and has pledged to donate 10 million yuan (HK$11.35 million) to it each year for the next five years. The fund will work in co-operation with the China Foundation for Disabled Persons.
