Sienna Miller, Anthony Joshua and Damian Lewis were among the stars at BGC Partners’ annual charity day in London.
The event is held each year to commemorate the hundreds of BGC employees who died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York in 2001.
Since its inception, the charity day has raised around £150 million, and the global financial services company has donated 100 per cent of its income from the day’s operations to good causes.
Every year, actors, sports stars and celebrities flock to the BGC trading floor in Canary Wharf to take part.
Also at yesterday’s event in London were Lord Botham, Rio Ferdinand, Clare Balding and Davina McCall, while in New York former New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and former tennis player Andy Roddick participated.
BGC chief operating officer Sean Windeatt said the charity day was launched to “create something amazing from the atrocities” of 2001.
