A SECOND Sheffield charity has been handed a surprise six-figure windfall by an undercover donor on the hit Secret Millionaire TV show.
The Rainbow’s End project in Burngreave has received the money from wealthy interior designer Simrin Choudhrie, who also donated to the St Wilfrid’s Centre for vulnerable and socially excluded, as The Star revealed last week.
The Burngreave project, which provides a haven and training for unemployed people, asylum seekers and refugees, hosted Simrin, aged 29, who bosses thought was a vulnerable young mum-to-be.
Simrin, who is descended from Indian royalty and heiress to a fortune, was seven months’ pregnant with her first child at the time.
Simrin is married to Bhanu Choudhrie, director of investment firm C&C Alpha Group and former Asian Entrepreneur of the Year.
Rainbow’s End manager Yvonne Hayes, a Church Army evangelist, said: “We are amazed and thrilled. When Simrin revealed her true identity and the amount she was going to give to us, I just couldn’t speak – and that’s unusual for me.”
The Secret Millionaire episode will be broadcast on Tuesday on Channel 4.
