Fans of Ed Sheeran have been trying to find some of his old clothing - after he donated items to charity stores across Suffolk.

The Suffolk superstar, who has a UK and Ireland tour later this year, tweeted yesterday: “Given my whole wardrobe a bunch of charity shops. All stuff worn on shoots, videos and live, if you live around Suffolk it might be near you”

Jacquie Bell, who works at Sue Ryder in Framlingham, said they were unsure if Ed had donated to their store.

She said: “If he has, we thank him.”

She also added that she had been receiving phone calls from fans who were trying to find out where the clothing was.

Ed is an ambassador for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH), but none of his clothing had been donated to their stores.

A spokesman for EACH said: “We’re not aware of any of Ed’s wardrobe items being donated to our network of shops, but fans have visited our Ipswich shop this morning enquiring about it.

“Ed is an EACH ambassador and we’re delighted to have his support which raises funds and vital awareness and understanding of the services we provide to life-threatened children and families across the region.

“Given Ed’s generosity, we’re not surprised he’s chosen to donate his items to charity shops.

“In not divulging which shops he’s donated to, Ed’s actions could prove to be a boost for all charity shops across Suffolk as fans go out in search of Ed’s gear and visit shops they wouldn’t normally venture into.”
