John Phizackerley, Group Chief Executive Officer, TP ICAP, said: “I’m delighted to see that ICAP Charity Day raised £4.7 million yesterday, bringing the total amount raised in 25 years to almost £140 million. This would not have been possible without the ongoing support of our customers, employees, suppliers and our guests.
