ICAP Charity Day
ICAP Charity Day is one of the biggest fundraising events in the City of London and is now in its 27th year. This year the event is taking place on Tuesday 10 December.
ICAP, a leading financial markets operator and provider of post trade risk mitigation and information services, gives away its revenues and commissions to a number of charities one day a year. Last year, an amazing £4.5 million was raised globally bringing the total amount raised over 26 years to nearly £145 million!
Coram will be part of the event in London which is fully embraced by their staff. As a selected charity, we will have celebrity ambassadors Sarah Beeny, Sian Welby, Alastair Stewart and Camilla Kerslake attending to represent Coram on the day and engage with the ICAP brokers, staff and clients.
We’re really excited to be part of this amazing day in 2019!
Thanks to ICAP's donation, Coram will improve disadvantaged children’s competence with numeracy alongside building confidence in the subject.
We will be able to broaden our education support to children by developing and delivering a numeracy programme that would provide:
- One to one number helpers – based on Coram Beanstalk’s model of trained volunteer reading helpers
- Number workshops – for children in primary schools based on our Tomorrow's Achievers coding workshops
- Online numeracy resources – for teachers via Coram Life Education's online SCARF resources
