Mauricio Pochettino joins city traders to raise money for Noah’s Ark


Tottenham Hotspur Manager, Mauricio Pochettino put his trading skills to the test at the annual BGC Charity Day on Tuesday to help raise money for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice.

The BGC Partners and Cantor Fitzgerald Charity Day is held each year in memory of the 658 people who lost their lives in the World Trade Centre attacks in 2001. Staff commemorates those who died by raising funds for charitable works worldwide and since it started in 2005, the charity day, which takes place in London and New York, has raised approximately $147 million.

Mauricio joined other well-known celebrities including Nicole Scherzinger, Damian Lewis, Tom Hardy, Holly Willoughby, Jimmy Carr and Bill Nighy to give a helping hand on the trading floor and speak to clients over the phone.

We also welcomed a family who is supported by Noah’s Ark to the event. Laya was very excited about the day as she, sister Zahrah and brother Luke, are all big Tottenham Hotspur fans. Mauricio took time away from the trading floor to meet the family along with Assistant Manager Jesús Pérez who also joined us. Zahrah was ready for action in her Tottenham training kit and even showed off her own trading skills by taking a few calls on the day!

Mauricio said, “It’s important to come together on the anniversary of 9/11 and remember those who lost their lives whilst raising money for important charities such as Noah’s Ark. The money raised from today’s event will make a huge difference to so many children with life-threatening conditions across North London.”
