Pair’s dream comes true in Ja­pan

Halifax Courier - - Yourcourier -

A brother and sis­ter who tri­umphed in a kick­box­ing tour­na­ment in Ja­pan re­turned to thank those who helped them make the jour­ney. Me­gan Gold­ing, 15, and Alex Gold­ing, 16, were the only two young Bri­tish peo­ple to be cho­sen to com­pete in the in­ter­na­tional kick­box cham­pi­onship cup, but needed to raise £5,000 to go. The pair were £1,000 short of their tar­get, but a fish and chip event held at the Gun­dog, Crown Street, Hal­i­fax,. meant they had enough money to re­alise their dream. Pic­tured are Me­gan and Alex with Mark Kosanovik, of Brack­enbed Fish­eries, who do­nated the fish and chips, and the Gun­dog’s Garry and Sharon Richard­son.
