Meet The Skipping Sikh

73-year-old Rajinder who calls himself the ‘Skipping Sikh’ intends to skip through England’s lockdown and make online workout videos to inspire everyone to join him.

Rajinder Singh Harzall began skipping at the age of five after being taught by his father who was in the army. The exercise fan went viral on social media when his daughter began sharing videos of him exercising. The Queen honoured him with an MBE in her Birthday Honours' list and Prime Minister Boris Johnson has awarded him with a Points of Light award, which recognises outstanding individuals. 

Mr Singh said: ”Nowadays we can’t go out. There’s a limited space to go out. But in the room, you can start skipping. It makes me happy, healthy, especially when I’m jumping and coming down I don’t think anything else but about skipping. Your brain relaxes."

He wrote on his JustGiving fundraising page: “My challenge to you: Join me, get skipping, get walking, get running, get active and post your videos tagged with #SkippingSikh on all social media…so we can reshare these videos and encourage more people to join the challenge.”

The 73-year-old originally aimed to raise £5,000 but has to date raised more than £14,000 for NHS staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients.
