The shop will open at The Old Creamery in Angel Link on Friday, March 3, at 10am.

And the Suffolk-raised superstar, who is an EACH Ambassador, has donated some of his clothing to sell.

Ed, who turns 26 this Friday, has been a major supporter of EACH since linking up with the charity in 2014.

Most recently he performed for EACH at its gala dinner at the Natural History Museum in November. The event raised more than £260,000.

He has also paid a visit to EACH's Treehouse hospice in Ipswich and taken part in a music therapy session with children.

Tony Grimmer, EACH retail area manager, said: 'We're so pleased to be opening our first shop of 2017 and thrilled that we can offer items of clothing donated by Ed.

'It's set to be a great opening so please do come along on the day to celebrate with us. We're very much looking forward to becoming part of the Halesworth community.'

The shop will also include a kids' corner – the first purpose-built area for children in an EACH shop, with an activity table and areas to relax and play.

Internationally-renowned artist Lucy Loveheart will officially cut the ribbon at the opening, and has produced a special print for the wall.

EACH is after donations of clean and good-quality clothing, bric-a-brac, modern paperbacks, toys, jewellery, DVDs/CDs, household linens, retro and vintage clothes and small electrical items. These can be dropped off at the shop from March 2.

The charity also needs donations of good-quality furniture and can collect it free of charge if you are unable to transport it yourself. Contact the Retail Distribution Centre on 01842 821620 for more information.
