Haven House's celebrity supporters took part in the excitement and fun of the annual ICAP Charity Day on Tuesday 5 December.

ICAP, a leading financial markets operator based in the City, gave away all its revenues and commissions to several charities, including Haven House in Woodford Green.

SAS: Who Dares Wins star Ant Middleton was the first to arrive in the morning and was keen to try the Haven House dart board which proved to be a popular hit with celebrities.

Ant then mingled with ICAP staff who were in fancy dress before making several trades on the phones.  

In the afternoon, Haven House Patron Ben Shephard and Ambassador Rochelle Humes lead their Ninja Warrior co-host and colleague Chris Kamara through the trading floor.

The trio were joined by This Morning's Dr Ranj Singh, Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway and Loose Women’s Saira Khan.

Haven House will use the funds from ICAP for its bereavement support service which provides specialist bereavement and emotional support to families who use the hospice, and to the families of children who have died at home or in hospital.

The service includes counselling which can support the whole family - mums, dads, brothers, sisters and grandparents - in line with Haven House’s holistic ethos.

The funds will also help Haven House deliver bereavement support to families at home as part of Haven House’s Hospice at Home project.   

Natalie Chevin, Head of Corporate & Major Gifts at Haven House, said: “The ICAP Charity Day was an incredible experience which none of us will ever forget.

“Our celebrities and staff had an amazing time and it’s been a complete joy to work with ICAP throughout this partnership.

“The funding from ICAP means next year we will be able to support even more bereaved families.”
