Hero of the Hour – Joe Wicks

In giving “every single penny he makes” from his online P.E. lessons to the NHS during the coronavirus lockdown of schools, Joe Wicks has shown himself as a hero of the hour

On Sunday, the Guardian reported that the fitness coach Joe Wicks – a man who has shot to fame whilst teaching online P.E. sessions during the coronavirus lockdown of schools – will donate “every single penny” he makes to the NHS.

 

Posting on his Instagram page in the wake of becoming a “national hero,” ‘The Body Coach’ Wicks announced:

 

“So I’ve decided that as long as I’m the nation’s P.E, teacher, every single penny of the money generated on these videos is going to the place where we need it the most right now. All of it is going straight to the NHS, to support the real heroes right now.”

 

“Thank you for watching, joining in and sharing … I’m loving being your P.E. Teacher and now you can watch again, knowing you’re not only staying fit, you’re also helping raise money for the NHS.”

 

Surbiton born Wicks’ YouTube channel now has nearly 2 million subscribers whilst his Instagram has 3.3 million. Spear’s Wealth Management Survey estimates the 33-year-old’s worth at a staggering £14.5 million.

 

We join all those saluting Joe Wicks.

  1. This young guy has done more for kids than the government. He comes across as humble and kind and he deserves to be listened to at the highest level. Boris should make him a health czar or something of that sort.
