Helicopter base is the site for coastguards' Chopper Ball

Coastguards are organising a Chopper Ball at Lee-on-Solent helicopter air-sea rescue base in Hampshire in three weeks’ time.

More than 550 guests will listen to tunes from the Royal Marines Band and prizes for the raffle include a David Beckham-signed Manchester United shirt, a platinum disc from the pop group Queen, a tickets to top London shows.

Organisers hope to raise money for the NSPCC and St Mary’s Hospital, Portsmouth.
