Simrin Choudhrie – Designer by Profession, Philanthropist by Choice

A renowned philanthropist, talented interior designer, a wife and most importantly a loving mother – Simrin Choudhrie embodies the various traits of a 21st century woman who oscillates between personal and professional world with excellence. Simrin dedicatedly served to the best of society’s interest for a major portion of her life, and is determined to continually work for its benefit.

Simrin, who is an interior designer by profession, pursued graduation in architectural interior from the Inchbald School of Design and is the founder and director of Bach Interiors Limited. 

Belonging to the elite section of society, Simrin’s idea of charity has always been based on spending quality time amid those less privileged to understand their issues closely and address them efficiently. 

This was one of the reasons that persuaded her to be a part of hit reality TV show “Secret Millionaire”, where she resided at the St. Wilfrid’s Centre for vulnerable people disguised as an impoverished, pregnant lady. Moved by the people and their prevailing condition, Simrin ended up signing the biggest cheque of donation ever received on the show. Now, she is also the patron of this Sheffield charity house. Apart from this, she is also one of the integral members of board of trustees at Mane Chance Sanctuary, an organisation in Guildford which is a home for abandoned and abused horses set up by actress Jenny Seagrove. 

Simrin is also the trustee for ‘Path to Success’, a London based charity house set up by Anita Choudhrie that works to uplift the disadvantaged and disabled both in India and UK. Picking particular causes every year, the established charity house has been collecting funds for the multitalented London Titans Wheelchair Basketball Club this year. They also arranged for a fundraiser wheelchair basketball tournament in April, from which the funds collected were spent to procure new custom wheelchairs, training equipment and to book 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.
