Patron Tom Hardy supports us at BGC Charity Day
Internationally renowned British actor Tom Hardy represented us for the second time on Monday 12 September at the annual BGC Charity Day.
By conducting trades alongside licensed BGC brokers, Tom helped raise valuable funds to support our lifesaving work.
Tom was joined at the event, at BGC’s offices in Canary Wharf, by dozens of personalities from the world of film, sport, TV, fashion and music, including Davina McCall, Pippa Middleton, Rio Ferdinandand Al Murray.
Every year, BGC Partners and Cantor Fitzgerald, in conjunction with the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, commemorate their 658 friends, colleagues, and the 61 Eurobrokers employees, who died on 11 September 2001 by distributing 100% of the revenue raised on the BGC Charity Day to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and charities around the world, among them, Bowel Cancer UK.
Tom Hardy said: ”I’m pleased to be attending the BGC Charity Day again this year in support of Bowel Cancer UK, which is a fantastic way of raising funds for an incredibly important cause. It’s staggering that someone is diagnosed with bowel cancer every 15 minutes in the UK. It’s a disease affecting far too many people, and why supporting the charity’s research and lifesaving work to stop bowel cancer Is so needed.”
Deborah Alsina, Chief Executive of Bowel Cancer UK, said: ”We are incredibly grateful to Tom for offering his support to Bowel Cancer UK again for the BGC Charity Day. Having such high profile backing will make a huge difference to us in raising awareness of bowel cancer which is treatable and curable especially if diagnosed early.”
