Harry Jeffery mid jump - Fabb Furniture

Fabb sponsors 11-year-old Spartan World Championships medallist

For months, 11-year-old World Champion Obstacle Course medallist, Harry Jeffery, has been using the Fabb Furniture store at Tollgate Way, Colchester, as a waypoint in his training routine.

As soon as the Fabb team realised this, they invited him into store to check out his skills and were so impressed, they decided to present him with a £500 sponsorship cheque.

“Harry won silver medal for Team UK at the Spartan World Championships in Florida recently. When we heard that he used our store as part of his daily training plans, we were keen to find out more about this remarkable young man,” explains Kate Cadman, Brand & Communications Manager, Fabb Furniture.

“Harry has amazing skills and energy levels, and we wanted to harness these and use his unique skillset to test out the sturdiness of our sofas, beds and dining sets. We already offer a free lifetime guarantee on all our furniture, so what better way for us to reflect the confidence we have in our well-built furniture than letting Harry loose on it,” adds Kate.

“I couldn’t believe it when my dad told me Fabb was sponsoring me. I am very grateful they are supporting me. We run past the Fabb store all the time and now, to be able to say Fabb is my sponsor, fills me with pride. Thank you, Fabb – jumping over your furniture has been great fun!” said Harry.

Stuart, Harry’s dad adds: “I’ve been taken aback by Fabb’s generosity, their genuine interest in Harry and OCR (Obstacle Course Racing). Now, thanks to Fabb’s support, Harry will be able to participate in an extra international competitive race in 2023. The Fabb sponsorship will make a significant difference in Harry’s own development; giving him a sense of validation and recognition for his skills and achievements, whilst also helping to grow this incredibly exciting sport.”
