Working Together 

For EBC Group’s Managing Director, Richard Lane, giving back to the community is something he has always held at the heart of business, and an important ethos that he imparts on his employees. Whether it’s through fundraising, or through sponsorship of local organisations, Richard has always endeavoured to support the local community and our 30th Anniversary will provide a fantastic way to celebrate this.

Of course, our ambitious target of £30,000 will not be achieved without the hard work and support of EBC Group’s fantastic employees, with 2019 seeing a real emphasis on the word TEAM, an acronym that Richard strongly leads by; ‘

'Together Everyone Achieves More’.
