A Vincent van Gogh-style portrait of Ed Sheeran is one of 100 art pieces to be auctioned in aid of a charity which supports Suffolk families.

Allan Williams has donated his original portrait of music superstar Sheeran, who grew up in Framlingham, to the cause.

Three books signed by Sudbury-born artist Maggi Hambling have also been donated to Home-Start's auction.

The money raised from the auction will help Home-Start support families facing challenges such as bereavement, long-term illness, domestic abuse and poor mental health.

Ali Watson, fundraising and marketing manager at Home-Start in Suffolk, said: "This year’s auction exhibition is set to be even bigger and better than last year.
