Ed Sheeran guitar helps to fund Framlingham school’s music centre

After a raffle to win an Ed Sheeran guitar, a music center was opened at the school.

This instrument was made for the latest album of the musician = [Equals].

It was raised through a charity raffle and used to create the SRH Music Ark at Sir Robert Hitcham’s Primary School, Framlingham - Sheeran’s hometown in Suffolk.

Pupils thanked him for his kindness and stated that the new centre was a "beautiful spot."

GeeWizz, a charity based in Bury St Edmunds, raffled the acoustic guitar to a winner. Kellie Myers, a hospital worker from Ipswich who purchased a PS5 raffle ticket, won the guitar.

Henry, 14 and Jacob, 13 years old, said that she was thrilled with her prize, and that Ed was loved by the entire family.

Sheeran signed the guitar and personalized it with the message "Henry + Jacob!" This guitar is yours!

The children at the state school stated that the building was filled with "amazing art" and would be used to sing, dance, and relax.

One student said, "It's such an honor to have our own space for music at school. Many thanks to Ed Sheeran's team."

Another person said that it was a great place to make music, while another stated that the BBC had given him the impression that it was modern and well-maintained.

Helen Picton is the school's head teacher. She said that there was a music pod open to all neurodivergent children. There is also a disabled toilet, so the children can use it.

"Music is at the heart of our school. To have this amazing resource is very moving.

"All of our children can go in there. They can be calm. They can be excited. But they can also start to heal from the pandemics they've experienced."
