Jayden Walters was surprised by the bikers on Saturday (August 22) after his mother, Sarah Jayne Walters, made an appeal on Facebook to “put a smile on his face”.

“He had an amazing time and he won’t stop talking about it,” Ms Walters said, estimating that 150 bikers came to the family’s home in Rossington, Doncaster.

As well as the bikers’ visit, a local ice cream van joined in to give the birthday boy free ice cream.

Jayden Walters,4, who has a rare condition, being held by his mother, Sarah Jayne Walters (centre), had his birthday wish granted when local bikers sang him happy birthday.

Jayden was diagnosed with rare condition Loeys-Dietz syndrome after being rushed to a special care unit shortly after his birth and undergoing heart surgery.

His family has been fundraising for Bluebell Wood children’s hospice, which has taken care of the four-year-old long term.

Ms Walters said the family was able to raise £240 for the hospice on the day of the bikers’ visit.

She said the Doncaster Dragons motorcycle club, who organised the visit when they saw her post, are “part of my family” after the surprise.

“Every one of the bikers made his day, they came from all over, but the Doncaster Dragons were the leaders,” she said.

“We will be keeping in touch with the Doncaster Dragons, they’re part of my family now and made my boy’s dream come true.”

Annie Wall, whose father and brother were among the bikers, said: “I’m from a family of bikers and we’ve found it hard during lockdown too. We just wanted to help make someone feel special on their special day.”
