Simrin Bakshi Choudhrie
Indian-born philanthropist, entrepreneur and mother, Simrin has devoted much of her life to helping others.
As a child, a life-changing visit to the slums gave her the desire to truly understand problems at the coal face.
Her belief that 'you have to live it and feel it' also took her undercover on a TV show, where she was able to see first hand where her support could really make a difference.
Getting close to the action is what continues to drive her today - as a fervent supporter of many charities and as a lifelong animal lover, Simrin extends her philanthropic activities to us at Mane Chance Sanctuary, in ensuring a safe and loving environment for horses in need of care and rehabilitation.
