FOR many firms the PSP Southampton Boat Show is about making money, rather than giving it away.

But for Dean & Reddyhoff Marinas, which runs the marina at Haslar, Gosport, it was the ideal time to hand over some cash to the Gosport & Fareham Inshore Rescue Team and Gosport Sea Cadets.

Every year the marina company holds a fundraising evening at all four of its marinas.

More than 300 berth holders turned up for the event this year, and raised £2,408 for the two charities.

Gafirs hopes to purchase four new dry suits and the cadets will put their £1,204 towards a new Trinity rowing boat.
