Lottery winners work for 24 hours to spread Christmas cheer for Dundee children

Lottery winners have created a giant gingerbread playhouse for children’s charity The Yard in Dundee.

The charity supports disabled children and young people by offering a safe space to enjoy indoor and outdoor play.

The 13 lottery winners worked for 24 hours to create some Christmas magic when they turned a simple wood cabin into an enchanting super-sized gingerbread playhouse. They armed themselves with 75 brushes, 20 rollers and more than 100 litres of paint.

Celine Sinclair, chief executive at The Yard, said: “We are so excited to have been chosen to receive this fantastic gingerbread playhouse.”
