Pop star Ed Sheeran has made a “significant” donation to a hospital children’s ward in his home county of Suffolk.
Ipswich Hospital’s chief executive said the money donated by Sheeran, 29, would “make a massive difference”.
“It’s such an amazing gift. It shows incredible generosity,” Nick Hulme said.
Global chart-topper Sheeran grew up in Framlingham, Suffolk, and now lives near the town.
Mr Hulme said Sheeran had donated a “significant amount of money” and the funding would “make a massive difference to children and their families for many years to come”.
In December, Sheeran launched a charitable music foundation to help young musicians in Suffolk.
His management has yet to comment on the donation to the hospital.
