Rider Profile – Jagdeep Singh Lall

On 6th August 2022 I lost the most influential person in my life, my mum. My mum, Satnam Kaur Lall, came to the UK as a refugee in the 1970’s when Idi Amin expelled all asians from the country. Her family went from riches to rags overnight, but luckily held British passports and so were granted entry. Over the years, my mum concentrated on educating all four of her children, so that if they ever faced the same situation as she did, then they would be able to stand on their own two feet. My mum was a super determined person and thanks to her us four children became professionals (a Podiatrist, Pharmacist, Actuary and Dentist). In her last few weeks, mum told me that her biggest success in her life were her children. It just goes to show how genuine refugees can and do contribute positively to their host country.
