Hairy Biker Dave Myers will officially open a three-day fine dining fundraiser, organised by the Lake District Farmers Armstrong Family Charitable Fund.

The event, in association with Clarence House Country Hotel in Dalton, takes place from January 31 to February 2 with a different menu available on each night.

Dan Austin, managing director of Lake District Farmers, said: “Dave opened it for us last year and obviously he’s very busy, especially with the profile he’s got after being on Strictly Come Dancing.

“It’s great to have him on board and he couldn't do enough for us.

“He’s great for Barrow and I think he is the perfect man to open the event.”

One of the highlights of this year’s fine dining extravaganza will be on the Sunday night when top chef Angela Hartnett will team up with sibling duo Chris and Jeff Galvin to serve up an unforgettable menu.

The event will be given an extra boost of star power thanks to Gordon Ramsay’s former partner, Marcus Wareing. Mr Wareing, whose restaurant The Berkeley has two Michelin stars, will be handcrafting chocolates to be served on all three evenings.

Mr Austin said: “We've had a lot of support from the industry. Marcus wanted to be here this year but he couldn't make it. He offered to chip in by making the chocolates and we're very grateful.”

All the proceeds from the event will be pumped back into the community via the Lake District Farmers Armstrong Family Charitable Fund.

The fund, a legacy of influential Barrow businessman Ray Armstrong who lost his battle to cancer in April last year, teams up with the Evening Mail to donate £1,000 a month to deserving local causes.

Tickets for the celebrity chef event cost £100, champagne reception included. To buy a ticket call Sarah Earley on 01229 870168.

Tickets for the Friday night have sold out with only a handful of seats available for the Saturday.
