A teenager who has been recovering from a bleed on the brain at The Children’s Trust in Tadworth has been presented with a golden ticket to The Supercar Event, delivered by supercar convoy.
Tadworth was rocked by the sound of heavy horsepower as a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, Ferrari 458 Italia and Ferrari 458 Speciale rolled down the streets to bring the ticket to Ryley Briston.
The 16-year-old has been at the rehabilitation centre for the last four months undergoing speech and language therapy.
Two years ago, Ryley, from Baston, Lincolnshire, collapsed with a bleed on the brain. He was 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.
After a stay in hospital, Ryley was moved to The Children’s Trust for rehabilitation to help regain some of the skills he’d lost. He stayed at the specialist centre for four months where he underwent a therapy programme, including speech and language, physiotherapy and play therapy.
