A memorial service is being held next month to celebrate the life of charity champion Kevin Streeter.

The event is in Anstruther Town Hall at 2pm on Sunday, February 8.

Kevin died in November, aged 60, after a four-year bout with cancer.

Since 1990, he had been a major supporter of the East Neuk Wheelchair appeal, as well as a dedicated charity campaigner in his own right in his home area of Hastings, Sussex.

A poem he wrote in 2006 to his wife Evie – sister of Wheelchair Appeal stalwart Eleanor Bowman – was converted by his friend Aidan Tigwell into a song, which has become a YouTube hit. A Virgin Just Giving page has also raised over £6300 so far for the Wheelchair Appeal and Cancer Research.

The service – led by the Rev Daniel Pollin, of the Coastline Community Church in Pittenweem – is due to feature tributes from Kevin’s stepson, Jordan Black, and Eleanor Bowman, with reflections on Kevin’s life from Mr Pollin, while ‘Evie’s Song’ is also due to be played.

“All friends and family are warmly invited,” said Jordan.

“People will hopefully hang around at the end for a plate of stovies and a blether too.”
