A fundraiser so he can keep raising money.

Norfolk's own Ruddy Muddy helps so many local charities with his sketches on his van.

But have you ever wondered how much it must cost him to run his vehicle?

Jack started a fundraising page for him to help him cover the costs of running his van because he has to drive it around for work and to and from charity events out his own pocket. 

Jack said:

"Obviously money's always a struggle for everyone so I thought why no help him get to his charity events and give him a little something extra in his pocket basically."

Ruddy Muddy found local fame after drawing pictures on his van by drawing in mud. He even has to paint the mud on his van in the summer!

He recently auctioned off some personal artwork to raise money for Finbar's Force and EACH and managed to raise over £1,000. 

When Jack heard he was raising money for EACH he knew he wanted to raise money to give something back and help him to help other people.

EACH has done a lot for Jack's family in the past. 

"My bother has a disability and in the past when he was younger he used to go in for rest bite, so he'd go in for weekend and I'd go along with him, they'd come out and see us at the house - they just helped our family a lot with support and care through his journey through his illness."

Rick (Ruddy Muddy) and Jack struck up a friendship 2 years ago, because Jack would film Rick's artwork on his van and put it on Youtube, which he's continued to do. 

 

He has since been featured on a BBC One show called 'Our Lives - White Van Gogh Man'.
