Date published: 16 December 2013

AN Oldham woman has raised more than £20,000 at a glamorous fundraising event in memory of her late father.

Nila Patel (33), from Coppice, organised the casino-style evening after her father, Hirji Mavji Nardani, died aged 76 in October 2012 and her nephew’s wife Rita (28) died from a rare cancer in April.

Nila - who owns a sub-post office in Millbrook, near Stalybridge - decided to raise money for the Stroke Association and Cancer Research UK.

Nila, and friends Prital Sachdev and Sasi Patel organised the dinner for over 340 people. Nila raised £10,000 in the four months leading up to the event and a further £10,000 on the night
