An online auction of clothes worn by Suffolk singing star Ed Sheeran on photo shoots, videos and live performances is under way with the aim of raising charity funds.


East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is launching an online auction for fans around the world to get their hands on some of the unique items, which were donated by the A-team singer.

Among the items which will go up for auction tonight will be an Orvis red sweatshirt with a cat design, a black PXL T-shirt with alphabet lettering, PXL sweatshirts and a blue T-shirt with the Ed Sheeran paw print logo.

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.”

Earlier this month, Ed 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.”

What followed was a hunt for the donated items by fans and charities alike, but they were actually all bagged up in Ed’s parents’ living room.

His dad then delivered eight bags of Ed’s clothing to the EACH fundraising office in Ipswich. Other charities have also benefited from the donations, including St Elizabeth Hospice and Sue Ryder.

The auction, on eBay, will end on Wednesday, April 9.

Fans will be able to the items that are up for grabs by visiting and following the link to the eBay auction.



  • I'm in no way a fan, but maybe he has put his hand in his pocket and, unlike many so-called celebrities, decided not to boast about it. And if this raises money for a good cause, so be it.

  • This boy must be worth millions, and he gives away some old clothes! Come on put your hand in your pocket and donate cash, rather than this publicity stunt.
