A charity set up to keep young people safe and create peaceful communities has received £2000 from Welling United.

For Jimmy was set up in 2009, the year after 16-year-old Jimmy Mizen was murdered in a Lee Green bakery in an unprovoked attack.

Since his death, his parents Barry and Margaret Mizen have campaigned to protect young people, and continue to share Jimmy’s story in pupil referral units, prisons and community groups across the country.

The Park View Road club’s donation comes from a bonus the National League South side received for reaching the first round of the FA Cup last year.

Welling United Director, Barry Hobbins said, “It is always a pleasure to help such a worthwhile and deserving cause like For Jimmy and we wish Barry and Margaret all the very best in continuing to help the young people within our community.”

The money donated will go towards creating Safe Havens, shops which act as a sanctuary for any young people who feel they are in danger.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
