posted by Mike Walton

Ronnie Wood has told of his delight after raising "a few billion" dollars for charity on the trading floor on Monday,

Ronnie volunteered to man the phones alongside Prince Harry, supermodel Eva Herzigova and singer Duffy at the offices of Bgc Partners at London's Stock Exchange as part of the annual Bgc Charity Day.

He was thrilled after completing a number of deals with clients, telling The Daily Express, "I can't keep up with billions - it's fantastic. I've raised a few billion today."

But it was Prince Harry who closed the biggest deal of all he brokered a record-breaking foreign exchange deal worth £15.5 billion.

Bosses at Bgc, formerly known as Cantor Fitzgerald, host the annual fundraiser to commemorate victims of the 9/11 attacks in New York. The company lost 658 employees at its offices in the World Trade Center during the atrocity.
