A once fit and healthy Dave Hollinger undertook a host of sports, living his life to the full but the professional mountaineer's life changed following a skiing accident in Scotland after which he spent a year trying to escape the grips of paralysation.

Moved by the family man's ordeal Hagan Homes donated £25,000 to a charity drive set up by Dave's family to support him, his wife and two young boys during the journey including therapy and other costs.
