HE’S a star – that’s what Dunelm staff think of their manager John Davenport.
“We’ve been sewing scrub bags and headbands and he’s been going all over delivering them,” said staff member Sarah Heathcote.
“He’s relentless – he has given himself wholeheartedly to letting people know we are here to support them.
“We’ve have a factory in Leicester and we’ve been making personal protective equipment instead of curtains and John’s been everywhere making sure those who need them can get them.”
The manager himself said: “We made 800 bags in three weeks, and headbands, and I’ve been to care homes, the Alex and The Princess of Wales in Bromsgrove.
“We’ve been all round, but mainly to the Alex.”
