Anthony Glover died on Tuesday, January 1 following a car crash on the A140 near Long Stratton the previous evening.

The Norwich scaffolder and army veteran was in his 30s and is survived by his two children.

Jonathon Childs, landlord of The Boundary pub on Aylsham Road in Norwich, where Mr Glover was a regular, has been leading the fundraising efforts.

Mr Childs said: 'The amount of donations coming in highlights how valued he was to us all. His departure from this world has affected so many lives but most of all his family and two small children.
