PROUD TO BE INVOLVED: Jamal Edwards MBE

SELF-MADE millionaire Jamal Edwards MBE spent his Christmas at a project for young people aimed at combating loneliness amongst those who have left the care system.

The 25-year-old founder of SB.TV, who was honoured by the Queen for his services to music in March, said it was his third year attending the Tope Project.

The Topé Project was formed after 23-year-old care leaver, Topé, committed suicide two years ago. Isolation is a huge problem for people who have been in care and are ejected from the system at 18, if they have left education.

As well as a pioneering and fun Christmas Day event – which aims to bring together care leavers, create positive memories and inspire them – the founder’s hope Topé’s legacy continues to promote more emotional support for children

“It was a pleasure to be involved once again,” he wrote on Instagram.
