Scaling a mountain and zooming through the air is just the way to welcome Ronan Keating to Cumbria.

On his first visit to the Lake District Ronan tackled Catbells in the rain and his co-host from Magic Breakfast Harriet Scott overcame her fear of heights by zip-lining through the air.

The Boyzone frontman preformed an acoustic set to a small group on the shores of Derwentwater near Keswick.

The pair arrived in at the Lingholm estate and hosted their breakfast show while alpacas milled round and the water lapped the shore. This marks the first time they have been on the road since covid-19 hit.

While presenting the show Ronan preformed live in front of a group of about 30 people who had all raised money for Cash for Kids.

Thrilled to be in the Lake district for the first time Ronan said: "It's really important to be back on the road, its important for all live music and entertainment, thank god, it means that we can get out and be with our audience and it is an incentive to get people involved with cash for kids.

"We have been a supporter of it for four years now and it's been incredible whether it's Mission Christmas or Holiday Hunger.

"We love working with the charity it's much needed. It's hard to believe that one in three children wake up on Christmas day without a present under the Christmas tree. It's heartbreaking. As parents we can't deal with it. Anything we can do to help cash for kids is an honour and a pleasure.

"Climbing that mountain was such a small thing really in the scheme of things.

"It's really important for people to see you out of your comfort zone doing something. When they see you doing something it makes them think I need to pay attention to this rather than us just broadcasting from a studio. If we're climbing up a mountain and Harriet is doing a zip wire they might just think donate some money.

"Even if it is just two or three people then our job is done. If this is what it takes, getting out and on the road again then that's what we'll do."

Harriet said: "What is really lovely is to see people again and meet people from cash for kids. We can sit in the studio and talk about people needing money and that the pandemic has hit people.

"The problem was already bad and now it is even worse but to actually meet people who's charities and schools that have directly benefited from money from Cash for Kids. It's an eye opener and it really brings it home.

"It's nice to be out and about it's really lovely.

The show marks the first time in two years that Magic Radio has been on the road and aired an outside broadcast and follows previous campaigns the station has done in partnership with Bensons, such as the Magic Book Club and Eloise’s Lockdown Tips.
