About the Anjool Maldé Trust:

The charity rewards and inspires young adults to ‘do good, do well’ in their life and career. It commemorates the life of Anjool Maldé (1984-2009) - known as Jools to his friends and colleagues.

Jools was a bright young man who lost his life tragically, two days before his 25th birthday. Many admirers wished for a lasting legacy celebrating his qualities - a generous, helpful, enterprising and innovative young man.

The Anjool Maldé Trust was set up in 2010 to turn this vision into reality. By the start of 2022, over 110 of the UK's brightest and talented best graduate-age young adults had been rewarded for their exemplary achievements. You can see more on the Trust here.
