Suffolk superstar Ed Sheeran has donated even more clothes to a charity in the county.
The singer-songwriter, who won two Brit Awards on Tuesday night, donated items of clothing from his dressing room at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles to the St Elizabeth Hospice shop in Framlingham.
On Tuesday, the Framlingham-raised pop icon, who was a pupil at Thomas Mills High School in the town, won Best British Solo Male and British Album of the Year.
At the Grammy awards, Sheeran was nominated for Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Song Written for Visual Media.
The donation was Sheeran’s idea, and his mother Imogen, had enough room in her suitcase to bring the clothing back from across the Atlantic.

Included in the donation are hats and jackets, and in addition, a pair of shoes signed by Ed will also be on sale at the shop on Market Hill.
It isn’t the first time the hospice has received a donation from Ed. Last year, it was one of four charities, along with East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, Suffolk Family Carers and Sue Ryder, to receive clothing from him.

The bags of clothing donated to St Elizabeth Hospice raised more than £4,000 to help provide hospice care in east Suffolk and south Norfolk.
Shop manager Rachail Pollard said: “It’s fantastic.
“We’re so lucky to have Ed’s support, and we’re sure that these latest donations will be quickly snapped up by eager fans.
“If you’d like the chance to get hold of a unique piece of Ed Sheeran memorabilia, I suggest you pay us a visit as soon as you can.
“We’re so grateful.”
The shop manager added she hoped the clothing would make in the region of £1,000 for the hospice, but hadn’t yet put a price tag on the shoes.
Mrs Sheeran will also be selling her handmade jewellery collection, and her son’s collection at the charity’s Woodbridge store on the Thoroughfare, between 10am and 4pm on March 14.
The exclusive bracelets in the charity’s shop colours of blue and green, will also be on sale during the day.
A spokeswoman for the hospice said they had been “flying” off the shelves.
