Westfield Bondi Junction victim's family breaks their silence over tragedy as ... trends now

The family of an architect killed in the Bondi stabbing massacre say they have been overwhelmed by people's generosity as they prepare to lay her to rest.

Jade Young, 47, was one of six people stabbed to death by a 40-year-old Queensland man on April 13 in a shopping centre attack that has rattled communities across Sydney.

Ten days on from the tragedy, which has also ignited a battle between authorities and billionaire Elon Musk, friends and family of Ms Young are due to gather on Tuesday for a memorial service in Sydney's Royal Botanic Gardens.

The service at the gardens' architectural centrepiece - the Calyx - will be streamed for those outside the venue, where a condolence book will also be available.

In a fundraising page online, the family said they had been overwhelmed by the outpouring of grief and were thankful for all the support received following the attack at Westfield Bondi Junction.

More than $210,000 has been donated to the page dedicated to supporting Ms Young's husband and two daughters.

'Ensuring the financial security of the girls as they face a future without their mother is the family's priority and they've been overwhelmed by people's generosity,' Adam McLaughlin said.  

Victims of the attack will also be commemorated in the waters off Bondi Beach at dawn on Tuesday.

The community paddle-out will be supported by local sporting organisations including Bronte Surf Club, where Ms Young was a member.
