A memorial fund in memory of Miriam Hyman who was tragically killed in the London bus bomb attack on July 7 has been launched.
The Miriam Hyman Memorial Fund aims to support projects in which the 32-year-old took a keen interest in.
Its first project will be to support Orbis UK, an organisation that aims to eliminate avoidable blindness globally.
To raise money, the fund will be organising various activities. Among the first is the selling of a collection of hand-painted silks created by Miriam's mother, Mavis Hyman which includes Judaica, ties and cushion covers.
This will take place at the Sternberg Centre in north London on November 27.
Also on sale will be reproductions of cards which Miriam herself designed.
Miriam was loving and much loved and touched the lives of many people through her caring and generosity," said Mavis Hyman. "We are hoping that the event will not only boost the finances of the Fund, but will also be an opportunity for anyone who knew Miriam to come and share stories over a cup of tea and slice of cake.
