A team from McBrides Chartered Accountants in Sidcup undertook a charity walk on Saturday, May 26, to raise awareness and over £4,600 for their nominated charity of the year, For Jimmy.

Ten years ago, Jimmy Mizen went out to buy a lotto ticket the day after his 16th birthday and never came home.

He was the victim of an unprovoked attack in Lewisham.

Jimmy’s parents and siblings have since been spreading a message of peace, hope and forgiveness as they work tirelessly to help create safer communities for young people.

Jamie Clarke, audit and accounts senior at McBrides, said: “As one of Jimmy’s school friends this is a cause which means a lot to me.

“Jimmy was such a big personality in our year and it’s been great to see our friends come together to remember him and support his family.”

They walked 22 miles and traversed 21 bridges across the Thames, starting at Richmond Bridge and ending at London’s iconic Tower Bridge.
