More recently, Emma is also operating in Redcar. 

First Class Learning creates confidence and helps students to reach their full potential. The Service provides support tailored to individual needs and focussed on the National Curriculum. Help is always available for school homework and exam preparation.

FansBet is a one-of-a-kind betting platform, the only bookmaker in the world which creates a bond with sports fans by committing to share half of its net profits directly with supporters.

Via their "Fan Partner" scheme, you simply type in your club when registering then choose your local fan partner/club/organisation to receive funds on a quarterly basis - they track your bets and do all the hard work.

FansBet work towards forming a genuine bond with fans by teaming-up with trusted and accredited fans groups and committees, who themselves decide where and when the money returned to them will be spent to help fans. Whether that might be to help raise funds to buy a stake in their club, subsidise tickets, travel or other important supporter-related issues.

"Win-win betting" is the perfect way to support your team, combining the thrill of a winning bet with the reassurance and satisfaction of knowing that a portion of all losing bets will help benefit fans of your team. It really is that simple.

*You must be aged 18 and over to be a customer of FansBet
