Becky enjoys first ever driving experience

The 22-year-old suffered a brain injury when she was 12. 

Becky Groves enjoyed the experience at The Supercar Event, which she inspired.  Becky from Crawley, sustained a brain injury from a viral infection when she was 12 years old. She spent two weeks in a coma and was not expected to live, but she survived and in 2006 was transferred to The Children’s Trust, the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury. The rehabilitation programme she received helped her to regain many of the skills she had lost as a result of her illness. On arrival at the national specialist centre in Tadworth, Becky was unable to walk or communicate, but with the help of physiotherapists, speech therapists and occupational therapists she greatly improved and was able to return home later that year. Her remarkable recovery inspired a group of Surrey Ferrari owners to visit the charity in 2007. The group, led by family friend, Richard Davis, gave children, families and staff rides in their supercars. The visit evolved into The Supercar Event, which celebrated its 10th anniversary this year, and has become one of The Children’s Trust’s most successful fundraisers. Read more about Becky here.
