An auction of clothes worn by Suffolk singing sensation, Ed Sheeran, has raised £7,289.87 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

The charity, for which Ed is an Ambassador for, launched an online auction of 70 items including tops, trousers and trainers on eBay last month.

Bids cam in from as far as America and Australia – with one super fan from Germany shelling out £897.55 for five items.

The most popular item was a pair of orange Adidas trainers, packaged with a signed postcard by Ed, that went for £555.55.

Other big sellers included  a tour t-shirt with a signed post card for £311.99, a T-Bar t-shirt for £271 and a pair of Element jeans for £255.

Jason High, EACH eBay Manager, said: “Once again, the generosity of Ed and his fans has helped us raise thousands to continue caring for children and young people with life threatening conditions and supporting their families.

“Our thanks to everyone who took part in the auction and also to Brandbank, which kindly took photos of each individual item for us to use on eBay”.

This recent auction came just four month after another that featured a Burberry suit jacket Ed wore to the 2013 Grammy Awards.

The Burberry jacket, and more than 100 other items raised £8,060.

Shortly after, in November 2016, Ed made his hotly-anticipated return to music by preforming exclusively for EACH at a gala dinner at the Natural History Museum in London.

Since then, the Framlingham star has gone on to release it third studio album, divide, which has broken chart records across both sides of the Atlantic.

26-year-old Ed has been an EACH Ambassador since 2014. He has also visited the EACH Treehouse Hospice in Ipswich, which is close to his family home in Framlingham.
