Amanda Holden, Abbey Clancy and Katherine Jenkins raise money at BGC Charity Day

Amanda Holden, Abbey Clancy and Katherine Jenkins put on their best telephone voices as they attended the BGC charity day in London on Wednesday afternoon. 

Boston Globe Consulting organize the annual event each year at their Canary Wharf office to commemorate the devastating September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001. 

Held in partnership with Cantor Fitzgerald, who lost numerous staff members in the attack, the event brings together dozens of famous faces, who take to the trading floor in a bid to raise money for causes close to their heart.  

Picking up the phone on behalf of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, Amanda, 48, was in high spirits as she mingled with her fellow guests on Wednesday afternoon.

The Britain’s Got Talent presenter looked typically stylish in a semi-sheer pink co-ord while closing deals with the expert guidance of experienced brokers, on hand to help the visiting celebrities raise their much needed cash. 

Elsewhere Abbey, 33, caught the eye in a buckled blazer jacket and ripped jeans after making her way into the event alongside recently retired footballer husband Peter Crouch.

The pair were on hand to raise money for Children with Cancer UK, and they were in characteristically buoyant mood as they shared a joke with their broker before trading got underway. 

Joining the group, Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine, 39, sported an elegant cinched blue dress while representing child bereavement charity Grief Encounter. 

The star was seen enjoying a light-hearted phone conversation as she sealed a deal on behalf of the London based charity.

Meanwhile The Duke of Sussex closed a £1 billion deal on a financial trading floor as he helped raise thousands of pounds for charity including his Invictus Games.

Armed with three phones as traders barked orders at him, Harry kept his cool and managed to seal the transaction, which is estimated to have raised £50,000.

At the Gilts desk, which trades in Government debt, Harry completed the huge trade under the watchful eye of Ryder Brown, co-head of the department. 

Brown said the duke had done the difficult job of closing a £1 billion trade in 10-year gilts.

He said: ‘I thought he was excellent. It was very nerve-wracking but he handled the pressure well and closed the trade.That was the hard bit, to close the trade. He picked the telephone up and managed to do it – it’s like old-style trading.’ 

BGC Partners is a company of City brokers, earning commission for the deals they facilitate between financial clients, and during the charity day a percentage of the funds earned will be donated to good causes.
