Ed's charity, the Framlingham Foundation Trust, is believed to have donated the money to help the teacher in learning skills to help children who may be unable to use traditional instruments.

The charity is based in Suffolk where Ed spent his childhood growing up.

According to the Sun, the charity's annual accounts revealed: 'The foundation paid for a primary music teacher to undertake a specialist teaching course in the Kodaly learning method.

'This method is well known as an alternative to traditional music tuition (focussing predominantly on aural skills and intuitive skill) and allows those students with learning difficulties to access a world of musical creation they may otherwise find it difficult to connect with.'

In Ed's charity fund, his mother Imogen is playing her role as the director of the Suffolk Kodaly Community Interest Company, which hopes to give children across the region a 'progressive music education'.

Talking about their work, Imogen said that their aim is for every pupil to sing regularly because it is hugely beneficial to their development.

 

Not only this but the multimillionaire singer also provided hot breakfast to any child who qualifies for free school meals through his Notting Hill restaurant, Bertie Blossoms. 

 

Ed also responded to Marcus Rashford's call for deprived children to receive free half-term meals by opening a breakfast club at his west London bistro.

The Portobello Road business is the latest to get behind Rashford's initiative after Tory MPs rejected the Manchester United striker's push to extend free school meals during the week-long break. 

The 'Perfect' singer took to Instagram to share the news, he wrote: 'In these difficult times, Berties want to offer anyone who is normally entitled to a free school meal or who is struggling in these strange times, a hot breakfast.

'Drop in between 9am-11am tomorrow or 8am-11am for the rest of the week and we'll be offering a hot breakfast, fruit and a hot or cold drink to kids - no questions asked.

'Either eat-in or take-out. We are with you, we are behind you and we love you! Spread the word.'
