Calling all Ed Sheeran fans! Extremely rare handwritten Perfect lyrics are up for grabs

Nab a unique piece of memorabilia like no other!

If the lyrics, ‘Baby, I’m dancing in the dark with you between my arms… darling, you look perfect tonight,’ set your pulse racing, then we’ve got the ‘perfect’ Christmas gift for you.

For Ed Sheeran’s original handwritten lyrics to hit song Perfect can now be yours.

Perfect is of course from his third studio album, Divide, and nabbed the top spot for Christmas no1 in the UK charts in 2017.

The global phenomenon is donating the piece of paper upon which he penned the song, and a variety of personal items, for an auction to raise money for charity, GeeWizz.

GeeWizz support children and young adults throughout East Anglia with life-threatening conditions, a disability or cancer to provide specialist equipment to improve their lives.

To kick-off proceedings and start raising some dollar, Ed is handing over his lyrics alongside his childhood Lego and a £3 ticket to his first ever gig in Framlingham.

Thanks to the support of his parents, John and Imogen Sheeran, they are also involved in the auction to help youngsters in the area where Ed, now 29, grew up.

As well as provide specialist equipment to sick kids, there are also plans to redevelop a playground for children with special educational needs and disabilities at the Thomas Wolsey Ormiston Academy in Ipswich, with an estimated cost of up to £300,000.

Funds will also benefit the town’s St Elizabeth Hospice, which aims to help teenagers and young adults with incurable illnesses live their lives to the full.

Other stars to get in on the action include David Beckham, Kylie Minogue and Usain Bolt, who have also donated items to the online auction running until November 8.

Meanwhile, there is also a Rolling Stones gold disc and signed Pink Floyd memorabilia from drummer Nick Mason donated as prizes too.

The only catch? You might have to have a generous budget.

The top bid on Ed’s handwritten and signed lyrics sheet is currently sitting at £8,100 at the time of publication.

However, more affordable items include a personalised signed Multiply tour programme from 2015 or one week of work experience at Ed’s label Atlantic Records.

Ed is also continuing his philanthropy with his own charity, having recently launched the Ed Sheeran Suffolk Music Foundation.

The foundation has been set up to help aspiring musicians under the age of 18 with some small but helpful grants for an army of mini Eds.
