Funds have been raised at a charity night to help a Bradford hospital worker tot up £100,000 to build India's first holistic haemophiliac centre for children.

Lucky Kaur hopes the building of the centre on land in Pune will be made possible by the generosity of people in her home city of Bradford and in India itself.

Last Thursday, which was World Haemophilia Day, she hosted a charity dinner and entertainment night at The Dubrovnik Hotel in Bradford, to get the ball rolling.

She said: "We were honoured to have the presence of the Lord Mayor of Bradford. A genuine and humble person,who had a great time and stayed until the end of the event. We are happy he will now be supporting the cause and is also keen to visit Pune in the future.

"My presenter daughter Anita Rani, hot footed it from the BBC to attend. My son Kuldeep,who has also volunteered and spent time in Pune at the hospital, gave a very moving speech which made people understand the vital need for their donations.

"As a Bradfordian I am proud of the support I recieve and will require the continued support of this wonderful City as I continue in my quest to raise funds for the Haemophilia hospital in Pune which will ultimately save lives."
