I'm Neil Roberts. My son Ralph was a brilliant skater and artist.

He was a very caring person. I think that is reflective of the skateboarding community. They are so supportive of each other. We've set up the fund called Live Like Ralph and it's our intention to keep Ralph’s spirit alive by supporting people within the skateboarding community.

On Celebration Day, we're going to go to the skate park. We're going to have a skate jam, eat his favourite food - scotch eggs - and let some fireworks off.
