In recent years, the singer has repeatedly donated his idols to the St Elizabeth & # 39; s Hospice store on the market square in Framlingham, Suffolk.

Hundreds of fans from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States have traveled to the store in the last two weeks to view the items he has given.

Earlier this month, Sheeran handed over 300 items of clothing and memorabilia to be sold for the Ipswich hospice.

Last year, an auction of another 300 items donated by the star raised £ 53,000 for the hospice.

The lots include Sheeran's custom guitar that sold £ 10,200, his harmonica costs £ 400 and a giant Lego model of his head that reached £ 850.

The Framlingham store where the Shape of You star grew up has shown many of the newly donated items before they are auctioned.

Many foreign fans of the singer visited the store after traveling to his four homecoming concerts during the August Bank Holiday weekend in Ipswich, which marked the end of his Divide tour.

Store manager Rachail Pollard said today: & It has been absolutely crazy. We have welcomed customers from all over the world.

& # 39; They have looked at Ed & # 39; s stuff and bought the strange. We have shown a life-size cardboard from Ed and many visitors have made selfies with it.

& # 39; We are incredibly lucky to have him as a local boy. He helps put Framlingham on the map. & # 39;

In addition to showing the lots to be auctioned, the store has sold a pair of jeans and a rack full of Sheeran & # 39; s shirts that he has previously donated.

About 30 of the shirts, priced between £ 35 and £ 175 and with labels ranging from Topman to Armani, have been picked up by fans in the last two weeks.

The store has also done a roaring trade, selling a series of Ed Sheeran jewelry made to aid the hospice by his mother Imogen, who lives in Framlingham with his father John.

The jewelry includes Castle on the Hill bracelets for £ 35 and bracelets with charms in the shape of a castle, a heart and Sheeran & # 39; s trademark paw print for £ 50.

Mrs. Pollard said: & # 39; we had a 25-year-old boy from Chicago who flew to the UK to go to all four Ed's concerts in Ipswich.

& # 39; He was a huge fan and came here because he wanted to see Ed & # 39; s hometown. He was completely blown away by the things we had in the store.

& # 39; He brought Ed's jeans for around £ 70, so he left very happy. He had a guitar with him and asked if it was OK to go outside for a while. I said: & # 39; Only if you're good enough & # 39 ;. Fortunately he was doing well.

& # 39; A couple from New Zealand with two teenagers also arrived. They had lived in Suffolk years ago and decided to fly back for one of Ed & # 39; s concerts.

& # 39; They really enjoyed looking around and bought some jewelry from his mother.

& # 39; There were also many German and Dutch people, as well as others from Canada and America, and even someone from Melbourne. We have also had people from all over the UK.

& # 39; It was fascinating to listen to their stories about how far they had come to see Ed and explore Suffolk.

& # 39; Someone said they had come all the way from Wales, so I had to tell them: & # 39; That is not so far. & # 39;

The latest articles donated by Ed will be auctioned on December 7 by auctioneers Bishop & Miller in Stowmarket, Suffolk, for the benefit of the St. Elizabeth hospice and his new initiative Zest that focuses on care and support for young adults.

A catalog with all items will be prepared in the coming weeks Oliver Miller, Managing Director of Bishop & Miller, said: & We are delighted to partner with the hospice to support Zest and the Sheeran family.

& # 39; It was special to hear how the money raised at last year's auction has changed the lives of so many young people in the region, and we have the opportunity to help more families again.

& # 39; Ed Sheeran is the most successful musician of recent times and he has rightly earned a very loyal following, so it's great to give fans the chance to own their own piece of musical history. & # 39;

The money raised will support the hospice services, including Zest, which aims to involve young people in the work of the hospice, and its services for young people in the region living with progressive and terminal diseases.
