Kebab kids love to help



TAYLA and Jayden Wills are a couple of Rockhampton kids looking for a slice of the action.

While most kids complain about boredom at this stage of the school holidays, this pair couldn't be happier helping out with the family business, TK's Doner Kebabs on East Street.

"It's great fun. Lots of people say what a good job we do,'' Tayla, 11, said.

"I really like it because I get to do the sauces and salads.''

Jayden also chips in.

"I like working near the register,'' the nine-year-old said. The couple, both students at Allenstown school, earn a small allowance for their efforts.

Their parents, Terry and Marg, said the situation worked well during the holidays.

Terry has worked in the takeaway business for more than 20 years.

"It's good because they're keen to learn,'' said Terry, who regularly works more than 60 hours a week.

"I like it as well because it means I get to see more of them.

"They come in with their mum around lunch time and do a couple of hours most days.''

This might be the last holidays the pair work for a while.

The Wills are looking to sell the business after 14 years.
