KIND-HEARTED recovering drug and alcohol addicts at a rehabilitation centre in Weston have spent a week painstakingly putting together beautiful gingerbread houses to give away to worthy causes.

Twelve clients at Westcliffe House in Madeira Road put together four of the houses and have been giving them out to youngsters at the Children’s Hospice South West in Wraxall, homeless people at Comfort at Christmas and patients at Weston Hospicecare.

The destination of the fourth house has not yet been decided.

Westcliffe House director Pat Bugler said: “It’s been lovely to see them make the houses.

“They have been helping in Prince Consort Gardens and this is another little community bit, and I think it’s lovely because they get a bad press and I think it’s good watching them and the joy they gain from it.”
