As we head towards the final closing hours of the online Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk Legacy Auction tomorrow evening, I would like to thank each and every one involved in helping us to make it happen, writes Gina Long.

Over 220 remarkable lots featuring rare memorabilia, original artworks and unique experiences from the worlds of music, entertainment, visual arts, sport and hospitality, will be going under the hammer in our Online Auction which closes from 6pm tomorrow at www.edsheeranmadeinsuffolklegacyauction.com

Every bid is helping us change many lives and there is no doubt that our special Legacy Auction would not have been possible without the generosity of our auction lot donors, sponsors and supporters in kind and everyone who is generously bidding.

We hope to turn our two vital legacy projects for children, teenagers and young people, across East Anglia with high dependency disabilities, life-limiting illness and cancer into a reality. And this really is what it is all about; the lasting legacy and the life enhancing impact it will have, via GeeWizz Charity and Zest, part of the St Elizabeth Hospice.
