Clothes worn on photo shoots, videos and live performances by Framlingham singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran are set to go up for grabs on eBay tonight to raise money for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Sheeran donated a number of items of clothing to their fundraising office in Ipswich, although it has been confirmed some will appear in their shop in Framlingham.

The auction will go live at 8pm for 10 days, with t-shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts on offer. More items will go up for auction later this week.

In March the star tweeted: “Given my whole wardrobe to a bunch of charity shops. All stuff worn on shoots, videos and live, if you live around Suffolk it might be near you.”

Melanie Chew, EACH Director of Fundraising and Retail, said: “Ed became an EACH Ambassador in February, following a visit to The Treehouse in Ipswich where he met with children, families and staff to find out more about us.

“During his visit Ed took part in a music therapy session with the children and played guitar. He’s already made donations of Lego, musical instruments and the free use of his music for our publicity videos, as well as donating royalties from the sale of a signature guitar.

“We now have another wonderful opportunity to raise funds as a result of his generosity and are launching a special online auction of his clothes today. We’ll also be saving some items for our new shop in Framlingham this Spring, as it’s the town where Ed grew up, and we’ll also be holding a few things back to auction off at fundraising events around the region.”
