BIMA would like to pay tribute to Rob Edwards, long standing BIMA member and BIMA 100  class of 2018 who has recently passed away. Generous with his knowledge and time, he leaves behind him a legacy of amazing community work and countless people who will miss him dearly.

Rob Edwards was Managing Director at Farm Digital, and GIANT – a tribe of digital creatives, dedicated to cause-related projects. In the last 12 months, Rob had driven GIANT to accelerate positive change in the cause market by encouraging the use of leading-edge technology such as blockchain, chatbots and artificial intelligence.

As well as completing the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme, Rob was appointed trustee of two pioneering charities: YUAF, a charity that supports disadvantaged children through music and arts; and Khulisa, a charity that aims to reduce reoffending and rehabilitate young people.

Rob’s family would like his memory to live on by supporting the Young Urban Arts Foundation. If you would like to donate you can do so here.

We know how important Young Urban Arts Foundation was to Rob and how proud he was to be a part of something so special. His mother, sister and I would like any donations from friends and family to go to Young Urban Arts Foundation” Keith Edwards, Rob’s Father
