Sally and Terry
Having a bet is just part of our everyday life like so many people in Britain.”
We’re Terry and Sally, a retired couple living in Yeovil.
We’ve got two grown-up children and Terry is a keen golfer. Another little hobby is ours is having a bet as we love our sport – it might be horses or football, but most months we spend about £150 having a punt.
This is well within what we can afford and we do it for the fun and for the social aspect, which people often overlook. We knows the managers and punters at our local Coral shop and, in normal times, it’s always nice to pop in for a coffee and chat. The banter and chat around the betting shop is great, especially for retired people.
Having a bet is just part of our everyday life like so many people in Britain. There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s a safe hobby for us and our son bets safely too.
Those in power need to hear from people like us.
