Great deals on musical instruments
Ed Sheeran has donated a signed guitar to a children's charity in Northern Ireland to help raise funds for the organisation.

The 22-year-old singer, who has family roots in Lisburn, has picked out one of his cherished guitars which will go up for auction at the Action for Children charity's fundraising night in Belfast next month, the Belfast Telegraph reports.

Organisers at the charity will be holding a Never Mind The Business music quiz and dinner at the Ramada Hotel in the Northern-Irish capital where the axe will go up for sale to the highest bidder.

Helen Quigley, Action for Children Northern Ireland partnership fundraising manager, told Sunday Life: "The monies raised from the auction of what I can only imagine to be a highly sought after item amongst his fans will make a real difference to children in our community who need our help."

Ed Sheeran has had a hugely successful 2012 with his debut album + going five times platinum in the UK and shifting over 1.5 million copies. The record topped the UK Albums Chart as well as scaling the heights in the likes of Ireland, Australia, the US and New Zealand.
