Ed Sheeran has cleared out his closet. Well, his mother has. And the hospice charity backed by Princess Kate is set to benefit.

A Burberry tuxedo that the singer wore for his appearance at the 2013 Grammys, including the $20 bill and a taxi company business card that were in the pocket, is a main attraction in the sale.

Outfits and memorabilia from the singer are being auctioned to aid the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) charity which Kate has supported for several years, including at a special gourmet dinner this year. There are T-shirts, skinny jeans and, of course, plenty of his ubiquitous checked shirts.

The sale runs until Nov. 20.

The navy jacket with a satin finish lapel is currently commanding a top bid of around $120. Other items up for sale include a Duffer of St. George T-shirt he wore to the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards in 2011 and a Jack Wills hoody he has been pictured sporting at a recording studio.

Sheeran’s mother Imogen brought in the bags of memorabilia to one of the charity’s centers. Sheeran, 25, has been an EACH Ambassador since 2014 and has previously donated some of his clothes and old instruments to the charity, raising thousands of dollars. He recently sold the drum kit he had as a teen for $3,310 to support the charity.

And his efforts wont stop there. He is also raising funds for the EACH nook appeal – a $12.5 million campaign to transform children’s palliative care across Norfolk, including building a new hospice — by performing live at a gala dinner at London’s Natural History Museum’s Hintze Hall on Nov. 30.

Ian Nicolson, EACH Head of Retail and Trading, said, “Our eBay store is becoming ever more valuable to us and I’m delighted that we can boost its profile further thanks to the support of our Ambassador Ed Sheeran.”
