EDINBURGH fringe stand-up Josh Howie is set to be the headline act at a charity fundraising evening in memory of a murdered teen.

The event, in aid of the Jimmy Mizen Foundation, is due to take place from 8pm on September 10 at Up the Creek club in Creek Road, Greenwich, during its comedy festival week.

Vice chairman and organiser Phil Cone said: "I am really excited about this event. Jimmy used to and still does make people smile when you think about him. It's only a 300 capacity club, so I know it will sell out."

Jimmy died on May 10 last year after being attacked by 19-year-old Jake Fahri in the Three Cook's bakery in Lee. He was sentenced to life for murder in March this year.

The foundation set up in the 16-year-old's name aims to help youngsters gain apprenticeship placements and give support to other youth organisations.

Tickets are available from Up the Creek directly at www.up-the-creek.com or call 0208 858 4581. For more information about the Jimmy Mizen Foundation see www.jimmymizen.org.
