On the 7th July 2017, Neal was on his way home from a morning cycle when he was involved in a freak accident, colliding with a car parked on the road. He suffered various injuries, the most severe of these being a broken back and leaving him with no sensation from the chest down. He was airlifted to hospital in London where he underwent surgery and has now been transferred to a the spinal unit at the Royal National Orthopedic Hospital in North London where he could be for around 12 weeks.
Those who know my dad will know how active he is with a great love of walking, mountain climbing, cycling and skiing so you can imagine what a devastating blow that injury has been to him and our family. Family Sundays were always walks in the countryside, holidays were camping and walking in Wales and skiing in France. He has instilled in both my sister and I a great love of the outdoors and essentially lead me to my career and life as it is now.
Everything good that has happened in my life has been possible because of my dad. Without his love, influence and support, I could never have been able to become a ski instructor, worked around the world and generally done the things that I love. I am who I am because of my dad.

Hi, Sorry it has taken so long to post but as you can imagine, it's quite hectic here in the Price family household at the moment! Thank you all so much for your donations and kind words, with the online and in person donations, the total raised was just over £3900!! This will provide valuable physio for dad, you cannot imagine how much he appreciates it and enjoyed reading how much people care for him. He returned home from hospital yesterday so we are entering the next stage of this long road. Physio starts next week! Thanks again!

I am a customer of Harvest Health Food. I have been lucky enough to have experienced Neal's knowledge of all things healthy since we moved here 12 years ago. He is an inspiring man who has had a tragic accident. I know he will be fighting to recover and Id like us to help him.
