Warwick Davis and Stephen Fry participate in BGC’s Charity Day
Each year, UK brokering company BGC Partners has a charity day in memory of the 658 employees lost on September 11, 2001. All profits for the day are given to charitable causes. Warwick Davis spent the day as a stockbroker to contribute to the Make-A-Wish Foundation as part of the company’s day of donations.
Tried my luck at trading during BGC's Charity Day for @MakeAWishUK. In one trade, I sold 2m Fiat Puntos… I think. pic.twitter.com/2ugOjl9bhj
