BARRY and Margaret Mizen have thanked Millwall fans for their support after Jimmy's Day was hosted at The Den on Saturday.

The Jimmy Mizen foundation handed out wristbands and information leaflets before and after the South London derby against Charlton – and also raised £1,338 in donations.

Prior to kick-off, Kenny Jackett, Chris Powell, Neil Harris and Paul Robinson signed the foundation's Peace Car and fans were invited to write messages on the Wall of Hope in the car park.

Also in attendance were Colin and Sally Knox, whose son Rob, a Charlton fan, was killed in similarly tragic circumstances to Jimmy.

Margaret Mizen told the club's official site: "I feel so proud. The support of the fans was amazing. It's a real family at Millwall and I'm glad to be part of it."

Barry added: "There are many preconceived ideas about Millwall, but there are a lot of very good people here. Millwall have realised what a force for good they and football can be.

"Hopefully others will follow their example in helping encouraging young people be part of a positve change in our society."
