Ed Sheeran's unlikely charity donation

ED Sheeran wants to volunteer at a charity shop.

The 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker is reportedly planning to use his long break from music to help out at the Sue Ryder shop in his home town of Framlingham, Suffolk.

Ed is also said to be working on turning an old police station into a youth club for local residents.

Manager of Sue Ryder Jacqui Bell told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "There's a good possibility he will volunteer here. We'd welcome him.

"My volunteers, who are aged between 61 and 91, know Ed because he was brought up in the town. They would be fine working with him.

"He purchased the old police station to open up a youth club for £1million, so he'll also be helping there when its up and running. I think he will draw the youngsters into our shop which would be good for us."

It is not the first time Ed has made a significant donation to local causes after he revealed he had given them his "whole wardrobe" to help raise funds.

He wrote on Twitter: "Given my whole wardrobe to a bunch of charity shops. All stuff worn on shoots, videos and live.Stuff ranging from the Ralph hoodies, Fenchurch T-shirts and Nike trainers (sic)"
