A house in Weston-super-Mare has been transformed into a spectacular Christmas toy shop to raise money for Children's Hospice South West.

John Burge from Clevedon has been lighting up his home in Spencer Drive, Worle, since 2011 after a family friend's seven-year-old son died of leukaemia.

This loss inspired John to get involved with the local hospice.

This is when he came up with the idea of transforming his own house into a retro children's toy shop.
