A FUND set up in memory of Gurmail Singh is growing steadily.
About £200 has now been contributed to an appeal that aims to create a lasting memorial to the Cowcliffe shopkeeper.
But its founders are appealing for further help.
People from the Cowcliffe community initially wanted to collect cash for a reward after Mr Singh was attacked and killed at Cowcliffe Convenience Stores on February 20.
But after five people were charged with his murder, they decided the money should go towards a memorial.
Ideas include a plaque at the shop and a bench engraved with his name.
Billy Pickup, landlord of the Shepherd’s Arms pub on Cowcliffe Hill Road, said a stone mason had offered his services for free for a stone engraving.
He added: “We could do with giving the fund a push, we want to do something special.”
Anyone who wants to contribute to the memorial fund can send a cheque, made payable to the Gurmail Singh Reward Fund, to: Alliance and Leicester Commercial Bank, Bridle Road, Bootle, Merseyside, L30 4GB.
To pay in online, use the payee Gurmail Singh Fund, sort code 72-00-04 and account number 74581985.
