A SCHEME which cuts costs for Keighley Business Improvement District (BID) members has reached a landmark.

Savings identified since the initiative launched have smashed through the £100,000 mark.

The venture achieves price reductions by using the buying power of more than 10,000 businesses across UK BID projects, through partner Meercat Associates.

Keighley businesses to benefit include M&J Framing, which has saved over £1,700 on energy and telecommunications costs.

“When running a busy business it is always difficult to find the time to approach many different suppliers for the best deals,” said owner, Manny Ali. “The BID cost-saving scheme took all the hassle away and was a simple way of getting a number of very competitive quotes. We certainly benefited from the scheme and I would recommend other member businesses try it out.”
