Ed Sheeran donates boxer shorts to support EACH in Suffolk!

Ed Sheeran, the pride of Suffolk, has delved into his closet and contributed various clothing items, including his boxer shorts, in aid of a children’s hospice.

A total of 445 items, including socks, boxers, various clothes, Ipswich Town merchandise, belts, bags, and other accessories, have been generously donated to the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) shop in Framlingham, Suffolk, by Suffolk’s own Ed Sheeran. The singer, who grew up in Framlingham, contributed to the charity, and many of these items are set to be auctioned on the charity’s eBay site.

The EACH eBay auction, originally scheduled to go live on November 16, was moved up due to overwhelming public interest. The charity confirmed that the garments, including approximately half of the donated underwear worn by Sheeran, will be sold as received, unwashed and unironed. Each sold item will come with a signed letter of authenticity.

Kevin Clements, EACH director of fundraising and communications, expressed gratitude, calling Ed Sheeran’s donation an extraordinary gesture. The items will be released in staggered auctions throughout the year, with a second sale planned for early 2024. The starting price for each item is £9.99, and 20 items are reserved for new EACH shop openings.

Clements emphasised the global impact of Sheeran’s fan base, anticipating that the donations will generate significant funds for the charity. Ed Sheeran has been a longstanding supporter of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, having previously donated clothes in 2014, the same year he became an ambassador, raising £7,500 for the charity. The funds raised will contribute to supporting children with life-threatening conditions and their families in Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, and Essex. The charity expressed its gratitude, recognizing the invaluable support that raises awareness of the vital care they provide to local children and families.
