"The kids are always out running around. They are an absolute joy.
"They help build our planters, they go above and beyond to help. They are still at school and keep their heads down. They are great and that's a testament to Nicole as a mother. She was 100% devoted to them."
She said the community are out "every day" and vigils have been held with the wider family.
"It's tough. The outpouring were are seeing from here from other families in the community is tremendous. People are coming from all corners growing a memorial on the estate."
The money is being raised to help support the children who are aged between eight and 15.
"Everybody on the estate is going out of their way. They have given clothes, toothbrushes, the basics," Brigitte said.
"At first we were thinking who is going to pay for the funeral, that's how it started.
"When a tragedy like this happens, what does it mean for the kids? They need to start afresh."
Ch Supt Andy Carter, borough commander for Camden and Islington, said: “This is an absolutely tragic incident that has left four children without their mother. My thoughts are very much with Nicole`s family who are still trying to come to terms with their loss.
“I am really grateful to those members of the community who provided early help and support to the family and we are working with our key partners to ensure the support is ongoing.
"I have made it clear that violence in all its forms and particularly against women will not be tolerated and therefore we have a collective approach with our partners to tackle it.”
