Commonwealth Games England hires Indian millionaire entrepreneur to secure Delhi funding

Commonwealth Games England have appointed Bhanu Choudhrie, a millionaire Indian entrepreneur, to chair its business advisory board in an attempt to secure the necessary funding before the squad's departure to Delhi in October.

Choudhrie will be working with "a group of eminent and respected sports minded individuals" as CGW looks to to raise £1 million to send a team of more than 500 athletes and officials to the Commonwealth Games.

Choudhrie, a former Asian Entrepreneur of the Year, has been at the helm of a raft of investments in recent years, including spa hotels in India and Mauritius to a portfolio of hospitals and care homes in the UK.

His involvement follows on last month’s announcement that CGE has raised over £100,000 through signing up Small Business Enterprise's to become an ‘Official Friend of the England Team’ for Delhi 2010.

Choudhrie said: “I am really excited to come in as Chair of the Business Advisory Board and am fully focused on the success of Commonwealth Games England.

"The Team have over 400 of England’s top athletes heading to Delhi and we want to make sure they have everything in place to help make the Games a huge success”.
