MUSIC and magic were on offer when firefighters held an event to raise money for charity.

Members of the White Watch at Fareham Fire Station organised a fundraising day to support the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC).

Local bands and a magician entertained crowds and in total they raised £1,300.

Watch manager Jim Stone said: ‘The evening included a superb show of close-up magic provided by Glen Stone and two great sets by local band Snatch Rescue put together by colleagues in the fire service who regularly gig at charity events such as this.

‘I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone involved, and in particular Andy Gussman, Pete Broomfield and Lin Batten who helped out enormously.’

He added: ‘Due to everyone’s hard work and generosity an impressive £1,300 was raised for the NSPCC.

‘On Monday, July 18 we were delighted to present a cheque to Mandy Finch who is southern area fundraiser for the charity.

‘We wanted to do something for a worthy cause and chose the NSPCC as they do so much good work with vulnerable children.’
