Halesowen-based IT services company, EBC Group, was awarded with social responsibility recognition at Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s Recognition Awards and Charity Ball.

The event took place at The Vox Conference Centre in Resorts World in Birmingham, and was an evening of celebration of those who selflessly give to the charity.

During a fabulous evening of entertainment, the charity recognised some of the aircrew, volunteers, fundraisers and supporters who went above and beyond over the last 12 months.

Sponsored by Unity 4, the social responsibility award went to EBC Group, which has been one of MAAC’s corporate partners since 2013, raising over £35,000.

The company has sponsored several events including the Corporate Golf Day and Charity Ball, and organised their own Race Day’s to raise funds.

EBC’s employees have hosted fundraisers in the office and taken part in challenges such as Bear Grylls Survival Weekend and the longest zipwire, and even volunteered in our charity shops.

The ceremony was hosted by actor and TV personality Will Mellor, and radio presenter Ed James. A host of famous faces including Paul Chuckle and Sally Bee presented the awards before a live auction to raise further funds for the charity.

The event will help to fund 34 lifesaving air ambulance missions, and 31 critical care car missions.

Emma Gray, fundraising and marketing director for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: “Our recognition awards are a wonderful way to show our thanks to our supporters, aircrew and volunteers who have gone above and beyond over recent years.

“EBC Group is a trusted supporter, fundraiser and supplier to the charity, and this award is a small symbol of our gratitude for their passion, hard work and dedication.”
