“At this year’s ICAP Charity Day, we are looking forward to supporting charities with the main focus on social mobility as part of our overall company CSR strategy, ‘A Voice for All,’ giving people a chance in life whatever their background or circumstances.
I am delighted we are supporting charities with an emphasis on education and training; assisting disadvantaged children and families; health and disability; and also with charities involved with the environment and animal welfare, another important area which we are pleased to support. I hope that the funds we raise will create significant opportunities for each of these amazing causes.”
