EBC Group Festive Race Day Raises £10,000 for Charity

Festive Race Day 2EBC Group, workplace technology and IT provider, held their first Festive Race Day in aid of Midlands Air Ambulance at Wolverhampton Racecourse. The event helped to raise £10,00 for the regional charity, who provides critical care to six Midlands Counties.

The Festive Race Day was supported by a number of national and local businesses including; M-Files, Swyx, Kaspersky Lab, Xerox, Wolverhampton Racecourse, Sanlam, GMS Group, Gemini Group, Concept Resourcing and the H&W Chamber of Commerce.

Clients and partners were treated to a VIP race day at Wolverhampton racecourse that included a 3-course dinner, a full day of racing and a number of fundraising activities, as part of EBC Group’s new commercial partnership with the racecourse.

The event also saw ‘The Worcestershire High flyers’, that comprises of business heads Rebecca Widdowson, Mark Lawson, Matt Nicol and EBC Group’s Managing Director Richard Lane; compete in a ‘bush tucker’ style trial. The team leaders, who are set to compete in a ‘Bear Grylls’ challenge next May got their first taste of the survival test by eating a host of critters and bugs to raise money for the Midlands Air Ambulance.

‘’We are absolutely thrilled with the money we have raised via our festive race day’’ comments Managing Director of EBC Group, Richard Lane ‘‘thanks to the generosity of our clients and partners, the fantastic donation will now go to the worthy Midlands Air Ambulance Charity helping them maintain the lifesaving service’’.
