A pop-up fell-top café proved to be a record-breaker, after a sell-out success forced organisers to close it early.

Bassenthwaite Rotary Club hosted the fundraiser on top of Latrigg on Easter Sunday.

It was the eleventh consecutive year that members had loaded up the vehicles, and brought an urn and several barbecues to the fell, to feed eager Easter walkers.

Many visitors make it part of their annual tradition to enjoy a cup of tea and a bacon roll overlooking Derwentwater, in return for a donation to the rotary club.

The nice weather saw the regulars joined by hundreds of others, who headed out for a family amble.

The pop-up café served bacon, egg or sausage baps, hot and cold drinks and cakes to hikers.

For the first time there was even a vegetarian option, in the form of a Napelese dhal, which helped ensure no one went without.

Organiser Lizzie Johnson said: "This year was our busiest ever.

"We were flat out from 10am until stocks ran out at 2pm.

"This year we introduced a Nepali dhal dish as a link with one of our charity initiatives, a clean water project for a school and village near Arughat, in Nepal.

"The dish proved popular, and overall we raised more than £1,500."

It was not all cooking and chatting for the Rotarian volunteers.

In the afternoon David Burton broke off from his café duties, to provide an impromptu mountain rescue service.

He drove to pick up a female hiker who had hurt her leg elsewhere on the fell, and drove her down into Keswick in his Landrover.

Lizzie said the hundreds of café customers included both local people and Lake District visitors, several of whom were repeat customers from previous years.

The club had to apologise to some hikers who arrived mid-afternoon to find the café packing up.

"If the weather is like that again next year, it looks like we'll need even more supplies to meet the demand," Lizzie added.

"We had a great day. Thanks to all customers and donors and for the expressions of support."
