While he's on our shores, Ed Sheeran wants to offer some sweet relief to flood-hit Aucklanders.

The British singer-songwriter has announced he's teaming up with iconic Kiwi brand Whittaker’s Chocolate to release a special "Ed Block" - made up of their Five Roll Refined Creamy Milk Chocolate, complete with his face on the label.

Five blocks of the special Ed-ition chocolate have been uploaded to TradeMe to raise funds for Auckland flood relief.

But that's not all ...

Each block has been signed by Ed, and also comes with a signed one-of-a-kind Ed tee as well as a year's supply of Whittaker's Chocolate (52 x 250g blocks)!

One hundred per cent of funds raised through the Ed Block auctions will go to the Auckland City Mission - Te Tapui Atawhai, who will distribute funding, in association with Foundation North - Hapai Putea Oranga, to other trusted local community organisations also delivering on-the-ground support to help those in greatest need across the city in the aftermath of the flooding.

Sheeran is currently touring Australia and New Zealand, with two more shows scheduled in Auckland.
