Leading Home Appliance repair firm, 0800 Repair have pledged £1,000 to sponsor rising Martial Arts star and Karate Black belt Aaron Swales ahead of the European Karate Championships in Greece where the competition will be held this May.
Aaron has been put forward to represent England as a part of the England Karate Team after a serious of tough bouts against fierce competition and a careful selection process to impress his coaches. The sponsorship comes as a welcome relief for Aaron as the costs for travelling to training sessions throughout the UK and competitions throughout Europe brings serious financial demands.
0800 Repair franchisee, Kevin Burnett became aware of Aaron’s case and contributed £250 from his own pocket which was then matched by other 0800 Repair Franchise holders and management.
Kevin had the following to say, “0800-REPAIR helped me achieve my dream to be my own boss and have my own business. And with their support, I can now go some way to doing the same for Aaron. Hopefully he can now go on to great things”
Kevin’s generosity had a great effect on his peers and owners of 0800 Repair with Franchise development manager Brian Jackson saying “As much as we are committed to growth, we are also committed to the local community and championing good causes and individuals who are trying to better themselves – which is what our business is all about.”

Covering a wide range of home appliances such as washing machine repair and cooker repairs 0800 Repair has saved thousands of pounds in replacement appliances by being able to repair customer’s current models.
It is hoped that thanks to 0800 Repair’s investment in Aaron that he will be able to focus on his training for May and hopefully win big at the European Karate Championships in Greece!
