"This is a great honour and a privilege to serve the people of Dudley borough as Mayor of Dudley and a unique opportunity to raise money for some very worthy causes.
"I hope people will help all three charities to continue with their vital support for those who need it. During my term of office, I will also be building on the strong links with our communities to ensure we continue to work together for the good of the borough.
"With such an exciting summer to come, with the Commonwealth Games and the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, I’m really looking forward to get going."
