East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) has broken its eBay record set be Ed Sheeran.

EACH auctioned 195 items last week, raising £4,784. The star lots were individual pieces of a green and yellow, butterfly-themed Aynsley pottery set.

A coffee pot sold for £500, a sugar bowl for £150, a milk jug for £125, and cups and saucers went for £250 to a buyer from New York.

Jason High, EACH’s eBay manager, said: “We’re coming across more and more gems as our eBay store continues to grow. This record-breaking week, that bettered those in which we auctioned Ed Sheeran’s old clothes, took our income for January to £13,004.

“The money raised is invaluable as we have to raise almost £6 million a year to sustain our vital care and support service. Our success on eBay wouldn’t be possible without the fantastic support of a small team, though.”
