UPDATE: Due to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II and the 10-day mourning period in the UK, this event was rescheduled for Thursday, September 29, 2022.
HvH Arts Foundation announced today on Instagram that their Patron Damian Lewis and Ambassador Sadie Frost will be back on the trading floor this year to support their charity at BGC Charity Day 2022. And Damian will also raise funds for CureEB as Patron of that charity. He is scheduled to participate in the 18th annual BGC Charity Day on Monday, September 12, 2022 at Canary Wharf located at One Churchill Place in London, England.
Damian raises money for two local organizations – CureEB which supports those affected by epidermolysis bullosa, a severe genetic skin condition that leads to blistering and skin loss at the slightest friction. Children with the condition are often referred to as ‘Butterfly Children’ as their skin is said to be as fragile as a butterfly’s wings. And the HvH Arts Foundation, a foundation near to Helen McCrory’s heart that is dedicated to ensuring every child is given a chance to connect with and express their inner artist in a time when funding for the arts are squeezed out of the mainstream curriculum.
Every year, Cantor Fitzgerald and affiliates, BGC Partners and GFI Group, in conjunction with the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, commemorate their 658 friends and colleagues and 61 Eurobrokers employees who perished on September 11, 2001, by distributing 100% of our global revenues on Charity Day to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and dozens of charities around the world. Since its inception, Charity Day has raised approximately $192 million globally. Each anniversary is a poignant occasion for the group. Charity Day is their way of turning a tragic day into one that is positive and uplifting by helping others.
