The charity has just seven group places remaining for the competition/
Groups must include between eight and 10 paddlers plus a drummer, with a qualified helmsman and racing equipment supplied.
Fundraising manager Patsy Johnson-Cisse said: “All money raised will help us work with children on the waiting list, children who have disclosed child sexual abuse and should not have to wait for a service.”
