THE family of the murdered teenager Jimmy Mizen are due to handover two mini buses to community groups worth £50,000.

Barry and Margaret Mizen will make the 'Jimmy Bus' presentation this Saturday at

Bellamy's Garage, in Burnt Ash Hill, Lee, just metres from the bakery where their son was killed last May.

The 6ft 2ins teen was killed with a glass dish on a Saturday afternoon, one day after his 16th birthday, by Jake Fahri, 19, of Milborough Crescent, Lee.

Fahri, who was jailed for life at the Old Bailey in March, went 'berserk' when told to get some manners by Mr Mizen and fatally threw a glass dish at his head, severing an artery.

The Mizen family, who own a shoe-menders in High Street, Sidcup, set about raising money to buy Lee and Sidcup scout groups minibuses in wake of their loss.

Dad Barry Mizen said: "We believe providing opportunities to the vast majority of decent young people in this country is the most effective way of combating the current issues in our society."

Comedian and BAFTA 2009 award winner Harry Hill will help present the 'Jimmy Buses' at 11am.

A memorial service will be held the following Sunday, May 10, at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Lee, to mark a year since Mr Mizen's death.
