Gordon Ramsey, Amanda Holden, Nigel Havers, Rebecca Grant and Nadine Lewington turned out to raise money for the the Louis Dundas Centre for Children's Palliative Care at the 6th Annual BGC Partners Charity day on Monday 13 September 2010.

Trading for charity 

Taking place on BGC’s trading floor in Canary Wharf, our guests got stuck in with the traders by getting on the phones and helping to close those all important deals.

Gordon Ramsay was a hit on the early shift, dispensing cooking advice alongside his trading exploits. Amanda Holden, not content with just one phone, took to standing on the desks with two in order to maximise the fundraising.

Memorial for World Trade Center

Every year on September 11, BGC donates its global revenues to charity in commemoration of those lost in the World Trade Center attacks. This year, the event raised in excess of $10million which will be distributed between 75 charities around the world, of which the Louis Dundas Centre for Children's Palliative Care is one.

It has been a truly fantastic day and I thank everyone at BGC Partners for making it such a success. The energy and generosity of our celebrity guests, clients, staff and volunteers have been remarkable and, as a direct result, millions will be going to a number of very deserving causes.
