A gruelling five day kayak around the Kent coastline finishes today near Dartford.
Four people began the voyage on August 4 to raise funds for Combat Stress – a mental health charity which supports veterans to rebuild their lives after the devastation of war.
At roughly 350 miles Kent has the longest county coastline in Britain but the group, from social media agency Sleeping Giant Media, had never stepped into a kayak before this week.
Luke Quilter, managing director at the company, said before the challenge: “There is a question mark over whether we can do this but fortunately we have plenty of support, including training from the Seapoint Centre in Hythe, so that gives us a much better chance of actually completing it.”
Their target is £10,000 and they currently have just over £4,700.
Please donate text CSGM49 plus £2/£5/£10 to 70070.
The group will get in to Erith Yacht Club at 11am this morning.
