Dez Pearson - North East Clothing depot
Dez has recently become a dad for the first time - but he still wanted to be there to support his colleagues!
"I would really like to thank Dez Pearson for acting so selflessly and for the support he has given the transport management team at North East Clothing depot.
"Just before lockdown, Dez became a Dad for the first time, welcoming Bradley Pearson. Dez had pre-arranged to take his paternity leave followed by holiday so that he could have quality time with his newly extended family.
"However, when Dez learnt that a member of the transport team was shielding and another had started their paternity leave, he cancelled 10 days of his leave so that he could support.
"This was precious time that Dez was going to be with his family, but instead he sacrificed this for work and we are all extremely grateful and really don’t know what we would have done without him."
