PERSHORE mayor, councillor Tony Rowley, will be joined by man's best friend when he holds his first coffee morning this Saturday (June 28).

The event, taking place at Pershore Town Hall, will see the mayor joined by some guide dogs as he raises money for the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, one of his chosen charities.

There will be food and drink available at the coffee morning, which starts at 10am, and a speaker from the charity for the guide dogs will make a presentation at 10.30am.
