I am 46 years old and was born and bred in Walsall. From the age of 17, I began my working life and was involved in many jobs. Recently I have become more active within broadcasting media and charities, especially Midland Langar Sewa (which is a charity that feeds the homeless, founded by my brothers). I have participated in many homeless feeds which have now inspired me to become a helping hand for others and to continue the selfless services which my family already do, however aiming this towards the elderly community. From this, we have started Sanjhi Sewa, which aims to tackle social isolation and loneliness in the elderly community.
