WELL-DESERVED: Workers enjoying their free bacon butties.

People dressed as giant bacon butties surprised road workers with the real deal.

The free sandwiches aimed to give Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (Scirt) workers who have been battling to complete key roading projects before Christmas a "pick-me-up".

All Right?, a group which aims to ensure wellbeing is at the heart of the recovery, was behind yesterday's initiative. The group is part of the Healthy Christchurch project, led by the Mental Health Foundation and the Canterbury District Health Board.

"These guys and girls have been under the pump - working long hours and weekends to get our roads and infrastructure fixed. It's a small gesture but we thought this will show them they're appreciated," said Ciaran Fox, from the All Right? team.
