Damian makes trading look easy as he participates in the 14th annual GFI/BGC Charity Day 2018 on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 in London for CureEB and the Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation. He stated,

“Axe is gonna bring some insider info to the floor to really crank those trades.”

First up was GFI Charity Day where Damian hit the trading floor for CureEB. CureEB is passionate about medical research and clinical trials that will help lead to treatments and a cure for 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.

Next up was BGC Charity Day where both Damian and Helen wowed the brokers for Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation, a foundation dedicated to ensuring that 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.

Here are a couple of videos of today’s event:

There are a lot of reasons why we’re fans of Helen McCrory – her talent as an actress, her wit and her honesty – but one that gets less recognition is her dedication to giving back. In her role as Patron of the Sir Hubert Von Herkomer Arts Foundation, Helen is devoted to helping provide children with a gateway to the arts, which is why this weekend she joined Savoy Executive Chef Ludwig Hely and Debbi Clark, CEO of the Sir Hubert Von Herkomer Arts Foundation, as they delivered a chocolate and cake decorating masterclass to children supported by the Foundation.
