The Starr Trust awarded Ryan the funds for table tennis training and equipment.
Ryan's dad says: "Before becoming a Starr, Ryan had only been with the Brighton Table Tennis Club for just over a year. He made it to the Nationals and got as far as the quarter finals with only one year's training. Ryan was over the moon when he received the Starr Trust Award. It meant that he would be able to access intensive training and move him towards his dream of playing for England in a future Olympics."
