Liverpool chef Simon Rimmer and singer Laura Doyle joined celebrities from the world of sports and showbiz for a blue-chip charity day in London.

The TV cook and singer with Merseyside-based Brazilian jazz band Baiana attended for the ICAP Charity Day in the capital, where celebrity guests trade stocks and shares with all proceeds going to good causes.

Simon and Laura worked to raise funds for Leadership Through Sport and Business (LTSB) which helps underprivileged young people get a start in careers with leading finance companies.

Among the other celebrities taking part included Keith Lemon, Jenny Agutter, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Lauren Pope, Dani Dyer, Richard Ayoade, Kirsty Allsop and The Duchess of Cornwall.

Baiana star Laura, who at one point won a singing contest with Keith Lemon to persuade one buyer to make a trade, said: “The atmosphere on the trading floor was electric, with everyone pulling out the stops for their chosen charities. The singing contest was really funny – but there was no way I was going to let the Scouse side down.”

On the day, 100% of the revenues and commissions ICAP generates globally is donated to approximately 100 charities worldwide. LTSB will receive funding for our ‘I CAN with ICAP’ project, which aims to transform the lives of 10 young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
