Clothes which belonged to Ed Sheeran have already fetched almost £1,500 on the first day of their sale.


The A-team hitmaker donated the clothes to four Suffolk charities last week and they have since gone up for auction on eBay.

Yesterday evening one of the charities, East Anglian Children’s Hospices, began their 10 day auction of seven items of the singer-songwriter’s clothing.

Already 220 bids have been placed and the total value of the clothes has reached £1,378.

A red Orvis sweatshirt with a cartoon image of cats on the front has received the most bids at 70 and is currently sitting at £561.

A black PXL T-shirt with an alphabet design on the front, which Sheeran was pictured in, is going for over £130.

Other items include PXL sweatshirts and a blue T-shirt with the Ed Sheeran paw print logo.

The auction will continue until 8pm on April 10.

In May another Suffolk Family Carers, received about 15 items of Sheeran’s clothing, which they will also auction on eBay.

Other charities to receive a batch of clothes are St Elizabeth Hospice and Sue Ryder.

Sheeran grew up in Framlingham and went to school there. Earlier this month he 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.”

A hunt by fans and charities for the donated items ensued however the clothes were bagged up in Ed’s parents’ living room and his dad delivered them to the charities personally.

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.”
