Jamie Bamber at 5th Annual BGC Charity Day 2009
A worldwide charity day was held by BGC Partners Inc (Barclays Group Capital) on Friday 11 September 2009 in memory of employees lost in the World Trade Centre attacks in 2001. BGC lost 658 employees when the twin towers collapsed. This was the 5th Annual Charity Day held by BGC and all profits for the day from offices in London, New York, Singapore and other offices worldwide was going to charity.

A bunch of celebrities, including Jamie Bamber, took over a trading floor in Canary Wharf to talk stock and shares.

I found some pictures with Jamie, unfortunately only with watermarks from BelgaPicture.

Ohhh thanks for the photos, great to see Jamie involved in something like this.

One minor point though is that blurb the photo people used was a bit wrong *g* BGC is BGC Partners Inc the company born out of Cantor Fitzgerald (who are the ones who lost 658 of their staff on 9/11), it stands for B. Gerald Cantor.

The charity day is growing year by year, last year they raised an impressive $8m and for anyone interested this is the list of charities they were raising money for this year: http://www.bgcpartners.com/about-us/charity/

An update on this - they did brilliantly this year, especially when you consider the economic climate and raised over $10m worldwide (sadly no Jamie mention in the press release):

Damn him. Grey sweaters are my Kryptonite. And it's not just bulky, is it?; someone's been keeping up on his bench presses lately.
