Generous shoppers donated £1,115 in memory of a mother who was shot dead as she celebrated her birthday in Kilburn at a fundraising event on Saturday.
Friends and relatives of Sabrina Moss collected the sum at Asda supermarket in Forty Lane, Wembley, which will go into a trust fund for her four-year-old son Mason’s future.
Ms Moss, who lived in Neasden, was gunned down as she celebrated her 24th birthday in Kilburn High Road, in the early hours of August 24.
Amanda McIntosh, 32, from Wembley, organised the event in memory of her cousin.
She was joined by Emanuel Flavious, both hers and Miss Moss’ uncle, and family friend Titania Titus.
She told the Times: “Every penny raised will go into a trust fund for Mason. It’s hard to believe he grow up without his mother.
“Everyone was so compassionate and generous. When they noticed our stall they came over and offer their condolences.

“We are a big family and very close so Sabrina’s death has hit us hard.
