Ed Sheeran to devote time for causes

London, Aug 23 (IANS) Singer Ed Sheeran, who gave away the entire outfit he wore for the Grammy Awards to charity, is now going to take time off to volunteer for different causes.

Sheeran will be volunteering at the Sue Ryder shop in his native Framlingham in Suffolk.

The 24-year-old plans to take a long break from music next month to help out with a number of causes. He is in discussion to set up a new youth centre in the town after crediting its old youth club for getting him started in music, reports mirror.co.uk.

The “Thinking Out Loud” singer is expected to donate another wardrobe of clothes to Sue Ryder and a charity shop for St Elizabeth Hospice.

Jacqui Bell, manager of Sue Ryder, said: “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 £1 million, 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,” Bell added.
