FasTrade, the online share dealing service of Edinburgh-based stockbrokers Torrie & Co, is making it ...
FasTrade, in conjunction with the Motley Fool and Comic Relief, will process shareholdings free of commission for any investors who wish to donate the proceeds to Comic Relief.
Investors can donate holdings of all sizes, including the donation of small holdings free of charge that might otherwise be difficult or uneconomical to sell.
Torrie & Co will be involved today in a variety of fund raising activities including a guess the pants competition and a "rummage through your drawers" to collect loose change for Comic Relief. Stockbrokers will even be losing their pin stripe suits and bowler hats for the day in an effort to dress down for charity.

The normal full charging structure is available on the website or by contacting FasTrade, www.fastrade.co.uk or Torrie & Co. Stockbrokers, 81 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 3ES.
