Supercar visit revs up The Children’s Trust’s annual appeal

A convoy of supercars, including a McLaren 675LT and Lamborghini Diablo SV, paid a special pre-Christmas visit to The Children’s Trust last week.

Impressed: the children staying with The Children’s Trust were wowed by the supercars

Children and young people are staying at the charity’s clinical site in Tadworth over Christmas to receive intensive rehabilitation.

Some of them gathered in the grounds to chat to the drivers and some even got to rev the powerful engines on the supercars.

Peter Dietsch, one of the drivers who organised the supercar visit, said: “It was an absolute pleasure to meet all the children and spread some Christmas cheer.

“It has been a challenging few years and it was great to see so many smiles on faces. We had a lovely time and hope to see the young people at The Supercar Event next summer.”

All revved up: the children all enjoyed the visit

More than 150 cars will appear at The Children’s Trust Supercar Event on July 22-23 at Goodwoodnext year, which hopes to raise more than £100,000 for the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury.

Until December 31, there is a 20 per cent “early bird” booking discount available on tickets for the event. To find out more and to book your ticket, click here.
