A CROSSGATES audience were in the giving spirit at a local band's charity fundraiser.

The Sunset Spirit headlined the British Legion to raise cash for CHAS (Children’s Hospices Across Scotland).

And the charity's Rachel House in Kinross is set to benefit from a donation of £1,263.

The band's lead singer Stuart Shields, and Stuart Watson, of Rubber Stamp Promotions who put on the event, were both delighted with how the evening went.

They said: "We would like to thank all the acts for their excellent sets; Sean Defrancesco who did a brilliant job with the sound during The Sunset Spirit set; everyone who attended and made it a great atmosphere inside the venue; Substation Studio; official photographer Matt Robertson, and Tom and Lorna from CHAS, who helped out on the door.

"Rubber Stamp Promotions and The Sunset Spirit are very much looking forward to working together again in the future!"

More than 190 people turned up, with four other local acts featuring on the bill.

The Black Diamonds, Claire Adamson, Michael Law and DJ Graeme Booth all played on the night.

It’s been a busy year so far for The Sunset Spirit, who were one of four finalists in this year’s Dunfermline Press and Central Fife Times Live Music Award.

They performed on stage at the Glen Pavilion in June with Foreignfox and Between the Lines, as well as eventual winner Steve James.
