'I'm asking if anyone can help big or small to go towards giving Tash a proper send off and making sure we can support Axl moving forward and help set him up,' he wrote.

'I'm a little lost for words at the moment and just hoping we can get the community around Axl and make sure we can support him as much as possible.'

Ms Raven's coworkers at Sassy Minx nail salon said she was 'irreplaceable' and that they will also be collecting donations to help Axl.

'In this incredibly difficult time, we are reaching out for your support. Tash leaves behind a young son, just 15 years old, who now faces a future without his mother's love and guidance,' the team said.

'To honour Tash's memory and to support her son, we are collecting donations to help cover the costs of her funeral and to provide financial assistance for her son during this challenging period.

'Your compassion and generosity mean the world to us as we navigate through this sorrowful time. Thank you for being a part of our community and for supporting Tash's family.'

Friends of Ms Raven wrote posted tributes for their friend online.

'I'm so glad I got to hug you on Thursday, but my heart breaks as we won't be out in our ocean together as we planned this weekend,' Sara Ashdown wrote.

'You were my rock at work, and I'll never forget how much you believed in me and supported me.'

'To hear your life was taken away from you last night has completely shattered my heart,' Carly Wallace wrote.

'You were the sun that lit up the room, and everyone who had a chance to know you were so incredibly lucky. You made me a better person for knowing you.'

The alleged driver of the Falcon was charged with one count each of manslaughter, dangerous operation of a vehicle, driving of a motor vehicle without a driver licence and failing to exhibit proper respect to deceased showing callous disregard for the needs of a person injured.

The man remains in custody and is now assisting police with their inquiries.
