Vintage vehicles will go on show in a transport rally to support two good causes.
Portsmouth Scouts will host the fair to support its work and raise funds for the Rowans Hospice, while also hoping to recruit more adults to the organisation.
It is the first event of its kind and is being held as part of Scouting's Community Week, a UK-wide initiative to help Scouts 'do one thing' to have an impact in their communities.
Rowans Hospice helps people with life-limiting illnesses across Portsmouth and south east Hampshire.
Event organiser Richard Spearing said: "We're using the transport rally as a recruitment opportunity for adult volunteers, as there is a huge waiting list for young people to join Scouting. We've got a large mobile display unit and climbing wall to try and attract passers-by."
The transport rally takes place on May 13 at Lakeside North Harbour between 10am and 4pm.
Ron Jacobs, district commissioner, said: "It's great that we're recruiting more leaders and helping out Rowans Hospice in this way. Scouting is so much more than boys, knots and campfires, and I think this event goes to show the variety of activities we partake."
