Signed edition of Ed Sheeran’s latest album, Autumn Variations, goes up for auction in support of children’s mental health
A signed edition of Ed Sheeran’s latest album has gone up for auction in a bid to raise funds for children’s mental health.
Organised by Suffolk Mind – a mental health charity – the auction for the framed copy of Autumn Variations album has now gone live.
The charity hopes to raise £14,000 as part of an The Big Give initiative, which helps to fund mental health education in schools.
The memorabilia was donated by Barry Griffiths, managing director of Barr Personnel – a driving recruitment agency.
Julie Long, fundraising manager at Suffolk Mind, said: “We are thrilled to be able to auction this special item as part of The Big Give campaign.
“It will be the perfect gift this Christmas for one of Ed’s many superfans and it will help fund such an important cause.
“Thank you to Barry Griffiths for this wonderful donation.”
The Big Give will take place between Tuesday, November 28, until the following Tuesday, December 5.
Donations made to Suffolk Mind up to £7,000 will be matched to raise £14,000.
The charity will also be providing a gift wrapping service at John Lewis in Futura Park, Ipswich, from next Monday, November 27, until Friday, December 1, in exchange for donations.
The charity will be there between 9.30am and 1.30pm.
Julie added: “We are always in awe of the incredible support individuals and businesses provide Suffolk Mind.
“Every donation helps us in our goal to make Suffolk the best place in the world for talking about and taking care of mental health.
“If you are able to, please support us however you can during The Big Give.
“The money will help provide more children across the county with the tools to look after their mental health.”
The starting price for Ed’s album is £80.
