Along with the growing number of international musicians doing their part to help others amid the COVID-19 pandemic, singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran donated more than 1 million pounds or $1.24 million (over P63.44 million) to various relief efforts in the United Kingdom.

Sheeran gave the amount to a variety of local charities and a children’s hospital ward in Ipswich, Suffolk, where he is currently residing, as per The Sun last Tuesday, April 14.


“He has split a seven-figure sum between local charities to try to ease the strain on his local community,” a source close to Sheeran was quoted as saying. “Ed is very involved in the area and knows that his donations will make a massive difference.”
