Sarra and Chris Hoy joined a multitude of celebrities on the trading floor for ICAP Charity Day 2017 as representatives for Bliss.
Bliss was one of around 200 charities selected as one of the beneficiaries for the ICAP Charity Day 2017 which sees brokers donate all revenues and commissions made to good causes.
Over the last 25 years, ICAP, its customers and partners have collectively raised nearly £135 million to support more than 2,200 projects worldwide.
The funding that Bliss will receive from ICAP this year will make a significant difference to our work in supporting neonatal healthcare professionals to deliver high quality family-centred care.
Specifically, the ICAP project funding will support the development of a Bliss Centre of Excellence: a new online membership portal for neonatal healthcare professional to improve their knowledge and understanding of family-centred care through e-learning and the facilitation of a peer-to-peer forum.
ICAP employees dressed in fancy dress to mark the Charity Day and took part in a number of exciting activities put on by charities. At the Bliss stand, ICAP employees battled it out on stationary bikes to make it onto the Rollapaluza leader board. Some lucky ICAP employees even had the chance to race some of our celebrities.
Sarra Hoy said: “I am thrilled to represent Bliss at this year’s ICAP Charity Day and am delighted to be here with Chris. The money raised by ICAP will benefit a huge number of projects across the world – including helping Bliss to improve outcomes for the most vulnerable of babies. Through the ICAP funding, Bliss will be able to provide high-quality training to healthcare professionals around the UK. It is wonderful to be a part of such an exciting day.”
Rakhee Thakrar, Jasmine Harman, Francis Boulle and Natalie Anderson also represented Bliss at the ICAP Charity Day.
Bliss is incredibly thankful to all the celebrities who took part on the day and to ICAP for their fantastic donation.
