The dinner, which is the final fundraising event as part of Councillor Peter Nutting's year in office, will take place on May 10 at the Darwin Community Centre in Frankwell.

The event begins at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and guests can enjoy a three-course dinner with Oakapple Catering providing the food.

Joining the mayor and mayoress in a celebration of their mayoral year will be Atlantic Rower and record breaker, Di Carrington as guest speaker.

Councillor Nutting said: “We have had a fantastic year and this final fundraising event will be our way of celebrating our time as first citizens of Shrewsbury, as well as saying thank you to everyone who has supported us over the course of the last twelve months.

“It would be great to have as many people as possible coming along to help us support a very worthwhile local charity.”

During his year in office, Councillor Nutting has supported Little Rascals Foundation based in Monkmoor, which works to make life easier for children with disabilities.

The foundation also supports children and their families to ensure they get the help they need to enhance their lives and increase their independence.

Ben Wootton, director of the Little Rascals Foundation, added: “We have been delighted that the Mayor of Shrewsbury has supported our charity this year, and his fundraising events have helped to raise both the profile of the foundation as well as much needed funds to make life easier for children with disabilities here in Shrewsbury.”

Guests attending the event will be able to use the car park at Hatcher’s Solicitors who are providing the parking on the day.

Tickets are priced at £25 and can be reserved by contacting Carol Pullen on 01743 257655 or email
