Keeping a dream alive

Clive Collins

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Clive Collins was paralysed from the waist down when he fell from a tree, but it hasn't stopped him from reaching his goal in life.

The Battle man set himself a target - to open his own Christmas tree farm.

He beat depression which had led him to use recreational drugs and alcohol and began his own farm at Catsfield Stream in East Sussex.

Clive uses specially adapted equipment and a team of helpers to run the farm.
