Ed Sheeran’s shoes part of auction for children’s hospice appeal

Jun 07, 2019

Fancy getting your hands on a pair of Ed Sheeran’s shoes or one of his guitars? Perhaps a trip to Rio de Janeiro or Florida is more your thing? These are just a few of the fabulous lots up for grabs at the Norfolk Show Ball this month.

The auction starts online and is live now at www.eachriocarnival.com. Bidding will close a few hours before the ball begins on Friday, 21 June. Those attending will then have an exclusive period to place final bids.

The Rio Carnival-themed event will take place at Norfolk Showground. It promises a riot of vibrant colour, with a taste of Brazil, and will raise valuable money for the nook appeal.

EACH Ambassador Ed Sheeran has kindly donated the following to go under the hammer:

  • A Martin LX1 Ed Sheeran Signature guitar (Divide model)
  • Four tickets to see him perform at his open air gig in Ipswich
  • A pair of shoes worn by the man himself

Additional auction prizes include:

  • A two-week stay in a four-bed Florida villa for up to 10 guests, supplied by Plastic Building Supplies
  • A luxury holiday to Rio de Janeiro, with Humboldt Travel
  • A flight in a Second World War fighter plane
