Sand, sun and beach volleyball fun in the heart of the city

10 years of epic beach volleyball FUNraising

For 10 years, my AFK (formerly Action For Kids) have brought the beach to the heart of the city to raise awareness and vital funds for our work – all while having fun in the sun!

 

Each year we welcome thousands of city employees, elite players and children from the local communities to come down to Canary Wharf, get on the sand and take part in the Olympic sport.

 

As well as raising necessary funds for us to help more disabled children around the UK, the chance to be in such a prominent area means we can further promote our mission to support young people with learning disabilities into work. We hope that businesses in Canary Wharf and beyond are motivated by what we do and get involved further.”

– Graham Duncan, Chief Executive of my AFK

Get involved in my AFK's biggest fundraiser of the year

There are lots of ways to be part of this incredble event:

 

Pay-to-play

Whether you want to book a court for a morning workout, get some work mates on the sand during your lunchbreak, or unwind after work with a friendly game, we’ve got you covered. During the week, the courts are open for pay-to-play bookings in one-hour slots.

 

Sponsorship

We have worked with some brilliant sponsors over the years – put your brand in the spotlight with courtside banners, kit sponsorship, or your own branded beach huts!

 

Enter a team in a tournament

There’s no better way to encourage teamwork than battling it out for a trophy and ultimate bragging rights – especially when fundraising for a good cause! There are several tournaments throughout the summer, including an elites day, corporate championship and agencies cup.

 

Bespoke tournaments

We can arrange a bespoke tournament package for your company if you want to put on a bigger event – get in touch and we’ll see what we can do.

Free court time for London schools

If your school would like to bring pupils down to Canary Wharf to learn a bit of beach volleyball or just have a bit of fun, let us know – schools can get on the sand for free.

 

Community days

Every weekend the courts are open to the community to enjoy for free – there’s often other events going on too, so bring the whole family!

 

Volunteering

We love our volunteers at my AFK! On tournament days we rely on our passionate team of volunteers to help the event run smoothly. If you’ve got a few spare hours over the summer, join us to help put on one of the best charity events in London!
