Margaret Mizen, the mother of murdered schoolboy Jimmy Mizen, has spoken of how she was moved to meet a knife-wielding attacker who mugged another of her sons.
She told the Sunday Mirror her youngest child, George, 15, was threatened by a teenage boy who told him he would stab him unless he handed over his over his iPhone and iPod, close to where Jimmy was attacked in Lee, south east London.
Mrs Mizen said she was saddened that the offender was heading down the same route as the youth who killed Jimmy in May 2008 and wanted to explain to him the pain he had caused.
Jake Fahri is serving a life sentence for Jimmy's murder.
The Catholic schoolboy was killed the day after his 16th birthday at the Three Cooks' Bakery in Lee after Fahri went berserk and threw an oven dish at him.
It shattered on his chin - sending a one-and-a-half-inch shard of glass into his neck, where it severed vital blood vessels.
Just hours after celebrating his sixteenth birthday, Jimmy Mizen was attacked and killed after getting into an argument near his home in south London. The schoolboy's parents wanted his death to mark a turning point in the fight against teenage violence.
For nearly six years, Barry and Margaret Mizen have worked tirelessly to improve the lives of young people - and today were honoured with an MBE at Buckingham Palace. Here's our Senior Correspondent, Ronke Phillips.
The parents of a teenager who was murdered in south east London have been awarded MBEs in the New Year honours.
Margaret and Barry Mizen say they're honoured to receive the titles for their charity work, but that it's "tinged with sadness" for the loss of 16 year old Jimmy who was killed in Lee in 2008.Piers Hopkirk went to meet them.
Actress Angela Lansbury, who has been made a Dame of the British Empire, has her roots in London's East End despite a career that has seen her become a fixture in Hollywood and on Broadway.
The 88-year-old actress is known to millions as the sleuth Jessica Fletcher in Murder, She Wrote but her career includes countless film roles including appearances in Bedknobs And Broomsticks, The Manchurian Candidate and alongside Elvis Presley in Blue Hawaii.
Lansbury, who was previously awarded a CBE, was born in Poplar, east London, but moved to the US during the Second World War after the death of her father Edgar, who was a politician.
Her award, on the overseas list, was for "services to drama and to charitable work and philanthropy".
The parents of murdered 16-year-old schoolboy Jimmy Mizen said they are "honoured and humbled" to receive MBEs for services to young people in the 2014 New Year Honours list.
Jimmy was killed on May 10 2008 - the day after his 16th birthday - after he was attacked in Lee, south east London. Jake Fahri is serving a life sentence for his murder.
Since then, Barry and Margaret Mizen have battled to help make young people safer - including creating the Jimmy Mizen Foundation, which works to increase young people's awareness of the consequences of violent crime.
Mr Mizen said the award was not just a reward for him and his wife but for the whole family, who are all involved in some way in the foundation.
