Leon took part in a Penalty Shoot Out @GXOLogistics in Derby to support the England Women’s Football team in the Euro 2022 final. He had a great time! https://t.co/QEdMLq8lPm
Freya enjoyed meeting her work buddies at a site visit to @GXOLogistics in Newark. The team are learning some Makaton (sign language) in order to better support Freya in her role. It sounds like a great start! Good luck Freya. https://t.co/b7fST8aaI4
