Fundraiser set up for children of London Irish woman stabbed to death

A FUNDRAISER has been set up to support the children of a London Irish woman who was stabbed to death last weekend.

Nicole Hurley, 37, was pronounced dead at a property in Broxwood Way, Primrose Hill, shortly before 1am on Sunday, October 10.

Jason Bell, 40, of Broxwood Way, Primrose Hill, was arrested later the same day and charged a day later with Ms Hurley's murder.

According to Radio Kerry, Ms Hurley's family are from Co. Kerry and her late grandfather, Patsy Hurley of Killorglin, was lifelong president of the Kerry Association London.

Now a fundraiser set up by neighbour and friend Brigitte Clements to cover the cost of Ms Hurley's funeral has exceeded £30,000.

Any additional money will be used to help her "four unbelievably incredible children rebuild their lives", according to the fundraising page.

'These children are extraordinary'

"These children have been the heart of our community," it reads.

"They help carry groceries for you if they see you carrying bags. They offer to water your plants when you are away. They come and offer to help to paint and repair whenever someone is busy tinkering.

"These children are not average. These children are extraordinary, and this is a testament to their incredible mother.

"They are bright, ambitious, curious and generous. They are four individuals that give you hope in what the future generation will bring."

A candlelit vigil to celebrate Ms Hurley's life will be held on Wednesday, October 20 in Primrose Hill.

It will meet at 7.30pm at Broxwood Way before making its way to the top of Primrose Hill.

Ms Hurley is the 14th woman to be killed in London since the murder of Sarah Everard by Met Police officer Wayne Couzens on March 3.

As well as Ms Hurley's murder, Bell has been charged with false imprisonment in relation to a third party, driving a motor vehicle dangerously and driving while disqualified and with no insurance.
