Hercule Van Wolfwinkle!
Hercule has been called lots of different things in life, an artist certainly isn’t one of them. And yet over 80,000 want him to draw their pets after a picture he’d drawn of his dog went viral. Hercule’s drawing style is akin to that of a small child who has never seen an animal before and is only just learning how to hold a pencil properly, but people like it. A large social media following and worldwide media coverage has catapulted Hercule into the limelight and he is using this exposure to raise money for his chosen charities, Turning Tides Ending Local Homelessness and StreetVet. To date he has raised over £250,000 and counting and this fundraising has seen Hercule receive a Points of Light Award from the Prime Minister, recognised by The Big Issue as one of their 100 Change Makers for 2021, and named as the ‘Creative Fundraiser of The Year’ at the 2022 Just Giving Awards .
Hercule will be opening the conference with his session on how we can use social media for good!
