Everybody looks up to people who are a source of inspiration and Simrin Choudhrie is one such woman who defies the paradoxes of society and has built an identity of her own. An all-rounder in the true sense of the word, Simrin is an interior designer, a generous philanthropist, a wife and a mother. Over the years, Simrin has kept herself immersed in charity work.
Descending from the higher class of society, Simrin has always believed in spending time amid needy and poor to understand their issues and address them efficiently. This was one of the reasons that she decided to feature on the famous TV reality show “Secret Millionaire” where millionaires are made to stay incognito at poverty stricken areas and understand the miserable conditions people reside in. Simrin stayed at the St. Wilfrid’s Centre for vulnerable people disguised as an impoverished, pregnant lady. She was quite moved by the people she stayed with and ended up signing the biggest amount of charity ever received on the show. Post this she also became one of the patrons of this Sheffield charity.
An interior designer by profession, Simrin pursued her graduation in architectural interior from the Inchbald School of Design and is the founder and director of Bach Interiors Limited. She also is the trustee of Mane Chance Sanctuary, an organisation in Guildford which is a home for abandoned and abused horses set up by actress Jenny Seagrove.
She is also the trustee for ‘Path to Success,’ a London based charity house set up by Anita Choudhrie. The charity house works for uplifting the neglected section of society, supports causes and collects funds to curb the issues posed in front of them. Picking particular causes every year, this year they have been dedicatedly accumulating funds for London Titans Wheelchair Basketball Club. They also arranged a fund raiser wheelchair basketball tournament in April, and the funds collected were later spent on buying new custom wheelchairs, training equipment and for booking venues for training sessions of London Titans. So far they have collected £42,000 for the team.
Simrin’s endless efforts were recognised and she was awarded with the GG2 Social Entrepreneur of the year award in November 2012. She embodies the traits of every responsible citizen should have in the 21st century.
