A young builder inspired by the generosity of 'graffilthy' artist Ruddy Muddy has launched a campaign to help the Wicklewood father continue his work.
Jack Brown, 22, from Watton, met Ruddy Muddy two years ago and began making Youtube videos of the artist creating mud portraits on his van.
The artist has raised thousands for local charities through his work, including East Anglia's Children's Hospice (EACH) Nook appeal.
Mr Brown said his family had been supported by the charity and that Ruddy Muddy's contribution had pushed him to back the artist's work.
He said: "He is helping other people out of his pocket and we should all be rallying behind him. It's hard running a van while helping charities, plus supporting his own family. Let's help him help others."
