The raffle for Cancer Campaign in Suffolk (CCiS) was launched last month and the winner was randomly drawn on Monday.

He recorded a video in February encouraging people to take part saying,

"It goes to a really fantastic cause, and it's going to help a lot of people, so thank you very much."

It's not the first painting Sheeran has donated to help raise funds for charity.

Another, Dab 2 - inspired by Sheeran's childhood nickname for his father John, who is also an artist - was part of a charity auction and sold for £40,000.

The singer-songwriter worked on both paintings after his long-running Divide world tour, which ended with a series of homecoming gigs in Ipswich in 2019.
