About Deljit

Deljit Singh grew up on Cromwell Road in the 1960s. His Dad owned ‘Rathore Continental Store’, which is known as the first “ethnically owned shop in Peterborough”. Deljit and his family have been incredible community ambassadors, doing mountains of charity and community work. They’ve done this as individuals and also through the Sikh temple.

Growing up Del was also well-known as a Sikh Heavy Rock DJ, and would often be found at a local community hall mixing on the decks.

Del is also a keen runner and often runs half-marathons for charity.
