Ed is amongst a whole host of celebrities and comedians who are supporting this year’s Red Nose Day on Friday 24th March to help transform lives here at home in the UK and across Africa.
A few weeks ago Ed visited children living on the streets of the Liberian capital Monrovia, many orphaned by the recent Ebola outbreak, to see how the money raised through Red Nose Day is used to help those who really need it. During his trip, Ed visited the Street Child Liberia project which uses Comic Relief cash to help give vulnerable children a better future, reuniting them with their relatives and helping them get back into school.

Ed Sheeran said: “I’ll never forget the kids I met on this trip, when we sang together they were in such high spirits despite everything they’d been through. It was an incredibly eye opening experience and I‘m really proud to support Comic Relief and see what they are doing to help these children have a better future.”
