THE Hairy Bikers cooked up a feast at a South Lakes mental health charity for their new roadtrip series.

Si King and Barrow-born Dave Myers spent a whole day filming at the organic veg farm Growing Well at Low Sizergh in August last year as part of their new eight-part road trip through the north of England.

They spent the morning learning about the charity’s vital work, and speaking with Growing Well’s beneficiaries, who volunteer at the farm or in the charity’s kitchen to help them recover from mental health problems.

The charity’s Catering Activity Leader Sarah Hill said: “It was a truly memorable day with Si and Dave from the Hairy Bikers, and we have been keeping a secret for more than a year."

Dave said: “We were mightily impressed by the work Growing Well do and the quality of what they grow is wonderful. Mental health is such a major issue, and getting involved in growing and the outdoors seems to really help people. Every town should have a Growing Well and I’d love it if they could come to Barrow!”

The episode is due to take place on Thursday October 7 on BBC Two.
