A former Wales rugby captain is leading a team of kayakers on a nine-day challenge around the coast of Wales.
Paul Thornburn and his crew set off yesterday, to raise money for the families of soldiers who have lost their lives in conflict.
Paul says he was compelled to take up the challenge after meeting an injured soldier two years ago.
It was a Wales England game. A few of the troops came in and unfortunately one of them was being pushed in in a wheelchair and he had both of his legs missing, and an arm. He's been caught up in an IED in Afghanistan and I thought I should do something for charity. I've run a marathon, cycled on a bike, so I thought this was something different.
