A GIANT Gingerbread House was the star of the show for one family at Christmas, as the Town Green Brasserie announced the winner of our Gingerbread House competition.

The lucky winner Richard Forrest was picked at random and all proceeds were donated to Queenscourt Hospice and The Legacy Rainbow House.

Raffle tickets were sold throughout the month of December and as well as receiving the tasty house, Richard was treated to a bottle of champagne.

“I was delighted when I learned I had won the competition, my son Dylan couldn’t wait to take it home and have a taste,” said Richard.

“We can’t thank the Town Green Brasserie enough, a fantastic competition for a great cause; the chefs had obviously spent a lot of time and effort making the house!”

Dan Mcdonald, general manager at the Town Green Brasserie said: “There was a real buzz about the place when the house was completed and both staff and customers were excited to find out who had won the amazing Gingerbread House.”

“Well done to Richard and Dylan, I’m sure the house was a great addition to the family Christmas. Thank you to everyone who took part, we raised money for two fantastic charities.”
