Peter Varney, Chairman of the Axis Foundation, says: “Hitting £1m in donations marks a milestone in the eight-year history of the Axis Foundation giving support to people and projects that make a big difference in their communities. We are delighted that our millionth pound is to be given to For Jimmy, a charity that is so close to our hearts and that has had such a positive influence.”

Alan Curbishley, Patron of the Axis Foundation says: “I’m delighted to lend my support to The Axis Foundation which has proven to make a big difference to many causes, people and groups in our community that need help, especially to celebrate donating one million pounds to causes and charities like For Jimmy that really make a difference and have an impact in their communities.”

Margaret Mizen, mother of Jimmy Mizen says: “We are so grateful to the Axis Foundation for their support and generosity. I promised my son the day he died I would never stop working on his behalf, and I would never forget him. Of course we never have. The support of the Axis Foundation means For Jimmy can continue to work to build safer communities for everyone. We are so pleased that their one millionth pound was donated to For Jimmy.”

Barry Mizen, father of Jimmy Mizen says: The Axis Foundation’s original donation helped us with our Safe Havens Programme in schools where a lot of important work is done. These partnerships are essential to our work. Our Safe Havens Programme continues to grow throughout Lewisham and we are working hard to develop Safe Haven projects in other areas. We look forward to a long partnership with the Axis Foundation and would like to congratulate – and thank – them all on reaching their £1 million in donations made to charities and causes like ours.”
