Ed Sheeran Donates LEGO Sets To School Kids

One of Ed Sheeran‘s early hits was “Lego House,” and now he and his fiancee are helping some British schoolkids to build their own.

According to the East Anglian Daily Times, a teaching assistant at All Saints Church of England Primary School was in a pub in Ed’s hometown of Framlingham and happen to spot Ed and his fiancee Cherry Seaborn there. 

The teaching assistant, Ria Cox, is also the head of the school’s LEGO club, decided to send a note over to the couple which read, “Dear Ed and Cherry, Google reveals that you are not currently a president of a LEGO Club, but All Saints Church of England primary would love for you both to be ours. It would be lovely to see you at our weekly group some time.”

Much to her surprise, she later got an email from Ed’s assistant politely declining the invitation — and a week later, hundreds of dollars’ worth of LEGO sets arrived at the school. 

Along with them was a note that read, “Hope the children love the LEGO – love Ed and Cherry.”

Cox told the paper, “Ed and Cherry’s generosity will allow us to open up the LEGO group to even more students, which is something we have wanted to do for a while. We are so grateful for the kind gesture from Ed and Cherry — it’s given the pupils lots of confidence and has definitely made them more excited.”

And now the bad news: according to the BBC, fire crews were called to put out a “small building fire” at one of Ed’s properties near Framlingham. A spokesperson said that within 90 minutes, the firefighters “extinguished the fire quickly and then ventilated the area of heavy smoke.” 

It’s unclear if Ed was at the property at the time.
