Thousands of betting shop staff and customers are signing up to back their local bookie.
Back Your Local Bookie is bringing together betting shop workers and customers who are speaking up in support of local bookies across the UK. The new website shares stories from staff and customers about what they enjoy about visiting their local betting shop, and the role shops play in their communities.
Betting shops have been part of our communities for 55 years. We now serve 6 million customers, employ 43,000 people and contribute £1 billion in taxation. Our staff play a vital role in helping local charities, and bookies increase footfall on the high street.
