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

  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
