Trading day to remember 9/11 victims benefits Woodford Green hospice
A trading day in memory of victims of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre benefited a Woodford Green hospice yesterday.
Each year BGC Partners commemorates its employees lost in the 2001 terrorist attacks and donates all global revenue to charity.
Stars including Joan Collins, Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, and singer Mitch Winehouse, visited its Canary Wharf office to back one of the recipients, the Haven House hospice.
They joined brokers to trade for the day.
Chas Hodges, Phil “The Power” Taylor, Barry Hearn, Steve Davies, Vicki Michelle and Kevin Adams all joined in to benefit the charity, which is based in High Road, Woodford Green.
