The Welshman, who took the top post within Dunmow's Town Council almost 12 months ago, has hosted a number of events to raise hundreds of pounds for his two chosen charities, the Alzheimer's Society and Accuro.
In an effort to further boost the charity coffers he will join the Chelmsford Male Voice Choir for an evening of singing and music at St Mary's Church on Saturday April 24.
He said: "My tenure as Mayor of Dunmow is drawing to a close, and my last fund-raising function is a concert.
"The evening has a packed program including performances from the choir, soloists, and instrumentalists.

"I am there as mayor, of course, but I also belong to this choir and will be the MC as well as singing on the evening. It is going to be a busy one!"
