Julia’s House Patrons, Martin Clunes, Harry Redknapp and Debra Stephenson found themselves closing multi-million pound trades when they took part in the BGC Charity Day in Canary Wharf.
They were joined by Adam Sevenoaks, 12, from Dorset and Joseph Hartley, seven, from Wiltshire, who are both supported by Julia's House. The boys got the chance to take part and learn about trading first-hand – as well as autograph hunting from the A-list guests.
Global brokerage company, BGC Partners hosts the annual star-studded charity day to commemorate the lives of more than 700 colleagues and employees who died in the 9/11 attack.

The celebrity ambassadors took to the trading floor in the London office to raise money for some amazing causes. BGC Partners donates 100% of the global revenue from the day’s trading to the charities and the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund.
