A Hanwell girl whose dad died in a tragic accident last year was driven to her school prom on a Harley Davidson motorbike as part of a touching gesture.
Eliza Jane was stunned when nine bikers from the West London Harley Riders (WLHR) turned up to her Hanwell home to take her to the Hilton's DoubleTree hotel in Ealing Common last month.
The Brentside High School pupil, born with bilateral talipes equinovarus, a condition resulting in foot deformity, had always wanted a go on the bikes.
It led her grandad, Tony Moore, to lodge a request to transport café Ace Café, but it was too late to arrange a pick-up.
But fortunes soon turned after mum Amanda Moore posted the request on the Hanwell Friends Facebook group .
A biker known as "Punkey" saw the request and rallied his friends to pick up the 15-year-old in front of speechless neighbours on June 24.
Eliza, also known as Ellé, said: "I didn't think there would be that many bikers. It was really good - that was the highlight (of the prom)."
The ride gave Ellé's spirits "a lift", according to mum Miss Moore, after she and her three children lost dad Jonathan Brown when he was hit by a bus outside Ealing Hospital, Southall , on April 14 last year.
Ellé, who was taken to the prom in a blue Road King, added: "He would have been like 'I want a go on one as well'."
During the ride Ellé even wore her late dad's biking jacket and also wore a prom crown on her helmet.
Since her birth, Ellie has undergone nine operations on each foot, wearing a plaster cast for the first four years of her life and not being totally free of casts until the age of 10.
Miss Moore, part owner of the shop Enchanted in Northfields Avenue, said: "This biker put a message on Friends of Hanwell saying I have a Harley Davidson and 30 friends with Harleys so we started messaging eachother.
"Ellé loves to be different because of her feet - she does not like to be the same as everyone else.
"She loved it, she was a bit emotional beforehand because there were photos going round of her brother's prom and her dad was in them - so it made it more prominent that he was not here.
"But she was so happy, she was over the moon and it was a brilliant memory that she created.
"It gave us all a lift and the neighbours seemed to enjoy it too.
"Jonathan would have loved it and he would have been so proud because she was so happy."
Biker "Punky", who has been part of the WLHR for five years, said: "She was ecstatic and she couldn't believe it.
"People were waving and taking photos so it was pretty cool."
