Ed Sheeran's grandma suffered from dementia before she died and was being cared for in a hospital. Now he thanked them with a generous donation.
According to British media reports, singer Ed Sheeran (29, "Shape of You") has earned an estimated fortune of around 230 million euros over the years and is said to be the richest entertainer under 30 in Great Britain and Ireland. He has now made a generous donation of 10,000 pounds (around 11,205 euros) to a hospital in which his grandmother, suffering from dementia, was cared for before her death, as reported by the British "The Sun", among others.
Aldeburgh Hospital in the county of Suffolk received the amount through Sheeran's charity The Framlingham Foundation Trust. Among other things, the money will be used to purchase musical instruments for outdoor use. Among other things, this should also help patients suffering from dementia.
Hospital workers are like "old friends" to Ed Sheeran
The 29-year-old musician had visited his grandmother with dementia very often in the months before her death. In Adam Kay's (40) book "Dear NHS: 100 Stories to Say Thank You," Sheeran praised the care his beloved grandma received there. The employees are "so lovable, sensitive, funny and caring". He and his family have developed a close relationship with them, some he still visits from time to time. "It's like meeting old friends."
Sheeran dealt with the pain of losing his grandmother in his song "Supermarket Flowers". The singer is said to have paid around 560,000 euros to schools and other charitable purposes through The Framlingham Foundation Trust alone.
