Suffolk charity shops receive boost after Ed Sheeran clothes donation

A number of charity shops in Suffolk are experiencing a boost after Ed Sheeran donated clothes to them.

The singer revealed at the weekend on Twitter that he gave his whole "wardrobe" - including items worn on shoots - to local charity shops.

He said: "Given my whole wardrobe a bunch of charity shops. All stuff worn on shoots, videos and live, if you live around suffolk it might be near you."

Sheeran is a patron of East Anglia's Children's Hospices but they said in a statement:

"We're not aware of any of Ed's wardrobe items being donated to our network of shops, but fans have visited our Ipswich shop this morning enquiring about it. Given Ed's generosity, we're not surprised he's chosen to donate his items to charity shops. In not divulging which shops he's donated to, Ed's actions could prove to be a boost for all charity shops across Suffolk as fans go out in search of Ed's gear and visit shops they wouldn't normally venture in to."

St Elizabeth Hospice (Ipswich) spokesman Jason Rudderham meanwhile commented: "We haven't had any items donated to our shops by Ed Sheeran sadly, but we have had a few of his fans visit our shop in Market Hill, Framlingham, looking for the items he tweeted about."
