THREE teenagers are bucking the national youth unemployment trend by working at an Ilkeston gym.
Kyeisha Purdy, Natalie Littlewood and Shannon Davies were taken on by Sally Peacock, manager at Curves gym.
Sally said: “Natalie impressed me after volunteering here, I employed Kyeisha after she carried out a future jobs fund placement here and Shannon works for me as an apprentice. All of the girls have done really well and I couldn’t manage without any of them.
“More firms should take on youngsters, their enthusiasm and commitment is brilliant.”
