July 9th, 2014, Newmarket: Endeavouring to ensure that they continue to add value to membership The Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association (TBA) are delighted to be launching today a new TBA offering that will help members and their businesses save money.
The Background: The TBA has teamed up with Anglia Farmers Limited and created a TBA Buying Group for members to benefit from savings on a wide range of products and services. The buying service, Affinity (a subsidiary of Anglia Farmers Limited), will help members save on all their business essentials, from fuel and electricity to mobile phones, vehicles and grass seed.
The Benefit: Through TBA membership everyone can become a member of the Buying Group and, by purchasing through the group, will benefit from a large variety of discounts. In addition to this, Affinity offer an impressive service where their experienced teams will do the back office work and ensure members are on the right contract for a large number of their utility and everyday bills. The TBA Buying Group can procure and establish savings on an extensive range of products and services including:
- Fuel, including bulk gas, propane and fuel cards

The Next Step: Registration to Affinity is very quick and free. There is no joining fee or annual subscription and no minimum purchase. For larger studs suited to AF Full or Associate Membership there is a small joining fee. An Anglia Farmers representative will discuss your needs and find the right package for you.
Louise Kemble, chief executive of the Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association, said: “We are very excited about this new offering for our members. At the beginning of this year, findings from our Economic Impact Study showed concerning financial statistics for small businesses and small breeders. Whilst we are conscious that there is a bigger picture to consider we are confident that this buying group will be of great benefit to many of our members and the significant savings will have a positive impact on their overall operations.”
Affinity general manager Louis Clabburn said: “We’re delighted to announce this new link with the Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association. We understand the importance of cutting the costs of running a business, particularly for equine businesses. Our personal buying service provides a single point of contact and allows members to benefit from significant savings – for example, saving between 10% and 25% on building supplies, aggregates, timber and white goods. We are sure that our service will be of benefit to members.”
