The St Elizabeth Hospice shop in Framlingham is preparing for a surge of interest after receiving another haul of personal items from the Castle on the Hill singer.

Donations include clothes and music books as well as Ed’s first record player, homages to Heinz ketchup and an assortment of Lego creations from his tour bus.

Shop manager Rachail Pollard said Ed’s donations tended to attract tourists to the shop, which also stocks a collection of jewellery made by his mother Imogen Sheeran.

“It’s brilliant for the hospice and for Framlingham,” she said.
