THE third annual concert to honour one of Fire Station Creative's founding directors will be held next week.

Bob Moir died at the age of 66 in 2016 after more than a year-long battle with prostate cancer.

He played a pivotal role in the conversion of Dunfermline's old fire station into a contemporary arts hub.

Over the course of four months, he painted out each of the 21 studios, to allow the artists and creatives to take up their residency.

His son, Ian, managing director, said: "There was no heating on in the building during those winter months. My mother kept him going on steak bridies and flasks of tea while he diligently painted the interior studios.

"He was always extremely generous with his time and energy if he knew it could help other people, and was extremely proud to see the building become a thriving cultural hub."

The charity gigs held in his honour have raised more than £1,000 for Prostate Scotland in the last two years.

Bob's close friend, Alan Forrester, organised both events and his three-piece band performed songs alongside singer-songwriter Sandy Power.

They will do so again next Thursday from 7pm at the Carnegie Drive venue.

Ian previously told the Press that his dad would have approved of the motivation behind the evening.

He said: "I’m sure he would approve of anything to help the charity Prostate Scotland after succumbing to that terrible illness.

“My dad was a real music lover and of great folk music, so this would be right up his street."

Tickets cost £8.50 and are available from FSC.

All proceeds will be donated to Prostate Scotland.
