Mandy's daughter Cheyenne Tudor said she was overwhelmed by the amount of support her family and Paynter's partner Marcus, who was also injured during the incident have been receiving.
Ms Tudor also revealed that Covid-19 lockdowns kept Mandy's children from visiting her before her death.
“This was extremely unexpected and devastating for myself and brother,” Ms Tudor said.
“Because of lockdown and the current situation we find ourselves in, we never had the opportunity to say goodbye.”
Ms Tudor wrote on her GoFundMe page that reaching out to others for help with the financial burden was not what she wanted.
“I am devastated to be on here asking for help but I have no other options so please if anyone can help, I would be more grateful then you will ever know,” she said.
“My mum Mandy Paynter, formally known as Mandy Newman, was a happy and loving person, she always went out of her way to make others happy and help anyway she could. All I want is for my mum to be given the funeral she deserves.”
