Ed Sheeran helped christen a suite in their name for a care home in their hometown of Suffolk, England on Tuesday (20Oct15).
The Lego House singer was back as part of his native Framlingham to celebrate the newly renovated Mills Meadow centre, that gives nursing look after older people.
Ed, who had previously been joined by his mum and pa, took a tour across the facility and spent time conversing with residents along with their family members, before cutting the ribbon to your aptly named Sheeran Suite, one among four new suites in the care home.

“It’s quite nice here,” the singer told local newspaper the East Anglian Daily Times. “My grandfather passed on from dementia in a house like this, so it will be nice to find out what they are doing here – they’re performing some good stuff.
“My dad was joking when camping saying that he’s picked his room already, he’s convinced he’ll end up here. Maybe it’s a premonition. It’s nice here, so many people are really friendly.”
In appreciation of his generosity, bosses at Care UK, which manages the care home, presented Ed that has a cheque for £500 ($312.50) with the charity of his choice, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
The residents also presented him which has a Lego set as a sign of their gratitude.
Ed has already established a triumphant go back to his hometown within the last few days, while he was given an honorary doctorate from bosses on the nearby University Campus Suffolk in Ipswich on Monday (19Oct15) in recognition of his contribution to music.
The distinction was particularly special for Ed, when he dropped outside of school on the age of 16 to be able to pursue his music dreams and don’t attended college.
Now Ed can proudly showcase his honorary degree and hubby took to Instagram after receiving the diploma.
“I graduated today, I am now officially Dr. Sheeran,” he wrote.
