THE charity gig held in Crossgates by local band Sunset Spirit, in collaboration with Lochgelly promotion organisation, Rubber Stamp Promotions, raised the grand total of over £1,300 for CHAS.

The two Stuart's, Watson of Rubber Stamp and Shields of Sunset Spirit, were over the moon with the total they were able to hand over on Wednesday and 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.

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

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

Stuart Watson added: "Myself and Stuart Shields were at Rachel House on Wednesday for the official presentation of the cheque handover of the money raised at the fundraising gig held on August 31.

"The total raised has been revised to the sum of £1,335.85, due to money being added from the collection tins that were being used on the night. The original figure I had was £1263.

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