KIRKLEES firms have been urged to support an awards scheme recognising outstanding smaller companies.

The appeal comes from Huddersfield man Stephen Waud, who is founder of Yorkshire’s Biz Awards, which recognises inspirational SMEs across the region which have triumphed over adversity.

Mr Waud, fund director of Bradford Enterprise Fund and co-sponsors the awards with Bradford Kickstart and Approach PR, said: “We are calling for sponsors to ensure the Biz Awards continues to give recognition to organisations which are making a difference but would otherwise be unnoticed.”
