SEN­SHI Do Kick Box­ing had its an­nual Hal­lowe’en spon­sored fancy dress ses­sion fol­lowed by a party for the ju­niors on Wed­nes­day Oc­to­ber 25. As usual the chil­dren had a great time, with Hollie Cor­mack and Lo­gan Gal­braith win­ning the girls’ and boys’ best cos­tume, Melody Hwang and Cal­lan May win­ning girls and boys re­spec­tively in mu­si­cal stat­ues, while Sara MacIn­tyre and Billy Brat­ton won the girls’ and boys’ wall stands. There were also goody bags for all the young­sters to take home with them. The money raised was enough to buy two new six-foot punch bags and two sets of body pads. Club coach Wul­lie Rodger said: ‘A huge thank you to Sharon Dick­i­son, Ker­rie Gal­braith and Kait­lynne MacLeod for all the help in set­ting up and run­ning the ses­sion.’
