The target of £5,500 has been exceeded, with more than £14,000 being raised to date.

Dover MP, Natalie Elphicke, has suggested a banner displaying the words 'We love the UK' instead.

We want to send out a really clear positive message that people in Britain feel huge friendship and affection to people in Europe, even though Brexit is happening against the wish of perhaps half of the country. It's a very painful thing for many people and in the year ahead we want to fight for Britain and Europe to have the closest possible partnership and friendship."
