The Jamal Edwards Self Belief Trust was established by his family to support the causes that matter most to Jamal: fighting homelessness, supporting people with mental health problems and providing young people with essential life skills.
All funds raised from Tuesday’s event will support these causes, with the main aim of giving young people the opportunity to thrive in the media industry.
Continuing the work Jamal has begun, and in partnership with Centrepoint, a homelessness charity, the Trust is developing a scholarship and return to work program for young people at risk of homelessness.
It will develop careers and opportunities in the media and provide housing to help young people get out of homelessness for good.

His heartbroken mother, Brenda, described him as “a beautiful and selfless person” in a statement read to the inquest. Earlier this year, she said she wanted his death to “stimulate more discussion about the unpredictability of recreational drugs.”
Mr. Edwards received an MBE in 2014 for his services to music and he was an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust.
In a statement read at the hearing, Brenda Edwards said: “Jamal was a beautiful and selfless person.

“Since growing up with his family in Acton, he has made it his personal mission to open doors for others.
‘Helping people through life, love and laugh. And above all to just make people happy.’
She added: ‘Jamal has helped so many and worked tirelessly to give people a platform.
His charitable work has stretched far and wide, from working in homeless shelters to returning to his roots in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
“We are so proud of all that Jamal has accomplished over the course of his 31 years and how he has impacted the lives of others. We miss him so much.’
