According to the NME, singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran recently donated 12 bags of his clothes to a charity shop in his hometown of Framlingham, Suffolk. While that may not particularly interesting in itself, the bags contained the suits that Sheeran wore to the Grammys and the Brit Awards.
The bag also contained the checked shirt he wore for his cameo appearance in the new film Bridget Jones' Baby.
Anyone planning to hop on a plane and get a cheap souvenir should think carefully though. The publication reports that, "Most of the clothes have been on sale at the shop itself since Saturday (September 24), but some items – including the Brits and Grammys suits – are on sale via an eBay auction. Bidding for Sheeran's Gant Bridget Jones shirt stands at £530 as of this morning (September 26), with the auction ending on October 4."
St. Elizabeth Hospice shop manager Rachel Pollard said: "We're delighted Ed has donated so many clothes to us. Over the last few years, we've had multiple donations from him, and they've proved very popular. People come from all over to queue to buy them, as well as people across the globe bidding online. We're really grateful for Ed choosing to support us."
A long-time supporter of the hospice, Sheeran's donations have raised an estimated $4,000 over the years. The St. Elizabeth Hospice provides care and support to local people with life-limiting and progressive illnesses, caring for about 2000 people every year, the majority of them at their own homes.
