Sunderland fans have now raised more than £25,000 for a tribute to two Newcastle supporters killed on the downed MH17 plane.
Traditionally bitter local rivalries have been put aside by the Wearside club in the aftermath of the tragedy.
A post on the Sunderland forum Ready To Go shows that the fans had originally hoped to raise around £100 for a floral tribute.
But a crowdfunding page shows that the £25,000 milestone has been reached after just two days.
John Alder, 63, and Liam Sweeney, 28, were both travelling to New Zealand to watch Newcastle's pre-season tour when their plane came down over Ukraine.
