A teenager with brain injury got a thrill when three supercars visited and he got to ride in a Ferrari.
Owners of the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, Ferrari 458 Italia and Ferrari 458 Speciale, drove to the Children's Trust in Tadworth, where Ryley Briston was treated.
He was also given a free golden ticket to The Supercar Event 2018, as he missed last year due to treatment.
Ryley’s mum, Mel Briston, said: “Meeting the supercar drivers was really special for us all, especially Ryley.
"He is such a determined young man and the visit was a chance for him to show that he is now able to stand for periods of time and take steps.
"He even had a ‘first’ during the visit when he got in to the Ferrari and had a short ride in it. He hasn’t even got in my car yet, so this was fantastic to see!
“We are so proud of him and can’t wait to attend to The Supercar Event, especially now it’s more local to us. It’s a great opportunity to highlight that The Children’s Trust supports children from across the country.”
Two years ago, Ryley collapsed with a bleed on the brain, he was just 14 years old.
After playing football with friends Ryley had returned home complaining of a headache. Within minutes he had a seizure and lost consciousness.
Ryley was diagnosed with an arteriovenous malformation and a severe, life changing brain injury. He was left unable to walk, talk or eat.
