Chairman of Dennington village hall, James Maberly, said: “We are very excited about it. We would like to make as much as possible, between £2,000 and £6,000 for the village hall project. The auction is also on the internet, so who knows what will happen.”

Ed Sheeran had donated the guitar, he said.

Dennington, with a population of little more than 580, is looking to raise £250,000 to redevelop the village hall.

“We have raised about £220,00 so far, we are in the last stages, but it is proving tough.

“This could help make the difference.”

They hoped to reach the fundraising target during April/May with the aim of starting work on the project during the summer.

The Clarke & Simpson auction is at the Campsea Ashe sale rooms on Monday April 9, beginning at 9.30am. The Ed Sheeran guitar is Lot 401.
