Ed Sheeran helped christen a suite within his name with a care home as part of his hometown of Suffolk, England on Tuesday (20Oct15).
The Lego House singer was back as part of his native Framlingham to celebrate the newly renovated Mills Meadow centre, which gives nursing take care of older people.
Ed, who was simply joined by his mum and pop, took a tour across the facility and spent time speaking to residents and family members, before cutting the ribbon towards the aptly named Sheeran Suite, among four new suites in the care home. Check Photography sheet music.
“It’s quite nice here,” the singer told local newspaper the East Anglian Daily Times. “My grandfather perished from dementia in the home like this, making it nice to determine what they are doing here – they’re doing good stuff.
“My dad was joking with me at night saying that he’s picked his room already, he’s convinced he will end up here. Maybe it’s a premonition. It’s nice here, everybody is really friendly.”
In appreciation of his generosity, bosses at Care UK, which manages the care home, presented Ed that has a cheque for £500 ($312.50) to the charity of his choice, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
The residents also presented him having a Lego set as a sign of their gratitude.
Ed has already established a triumphant resume his hometown during the last few days, because he was given an honorary doctorate from bosses for the nearby University Campus Suffolk in Ipswich on Monday (19Oct15) in recognition of his contribution to music.
The distinction was particularly special for Ed, while he dropped from school for the age of 16 to be able to pursue his music dreams rather than attended college.
Now Ed can proudly flaunt his honorary degree anf the husband took to Instagram after receiving the diploma.
“I graduated today, I am now officially Dr. Sheeran,” he wrote.
