Ed Sheeran's Personal Memorabilia Will Be Auctioned to Benefit Children
Today marks the kickoff for world-renown singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran's auction for charity, the Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk Legacy Action. The auction contains several items of Ed's donated by his parents, John and Imogen Sheeran, and proceeds will benefit charities in the Suffolk, England area that help support children and young adults in Ed's hometown.
The proceeds will go towards two charities: GeeWizz Charitable Trust, which supports young children with life-threatening illnesses, cancer, and disabilities and focuses on providing specialist equipment to improve their lives, and Zest, a charity which works to improve the lives of teenagers living with terminal illnesses by providing them with specialist care. The auction is happening today through November 8th, and will include memorabilia from Sheeran's childhood including a signed and framed ticket from his first ever gig he played at just 14 years old. It also includes the "Lego House" singer's childhood Legos, rare photographs of the artist, handwritten lyrics, and signed guitars. There are also other artists donating to the auction, including the band Snow Patrol, athletes Usain Bolt and David Beckham, and British singer-songwriter Kylie Minogue.
In addition to charity funds, the proceeds will help to fund the construction of a playground for a school for children with learning disabilities and physical, medical, or sensory needs. The playground will be accessible to a large portion of the school's students who are wheelchair users and cannot participate on the playground the school currently has at all.
