We are delighted to announce our partnership with City Sports Management for this year’s London Beach Rugby event. Now in its fourth year, the annual event is an exciting 5-a-side touch rugby tournament taking place on Finsbury Square on 29th and 30th July. 

Myles Waud, Managing Director of City Sports Management said: “We are really excited about the partnership. I am pleased about how everyone involved in our event can relate to what the charity does and knows that one day they or someone close to them might have to rely on the service. Whether they work or live in London. In addition, the London’s Air Ambulance team have fantastic relationships with a number of firms who play in the tournament.”

To celebrate the partnership, we invited three of the corporate teams playing in the tournament — Thomson Reuters, Freshfields Law, and BNP Paribas Real Estate — to our helipad, to learn more about our service that we provide for London. 

Graham Hodgkin, Chief Executive Officer at London’s Air Ambulance, said: “Thank you London Beach Rugby for making London’s Air Ambulance the beneficiary of this fantastic event. As a charity we rely heavily on the public’s donations and we really appreciate all the support we receive. This event will not only be a lot of fun, but it will also help us generate vital funds and raise awareness of our work too.” 

There will be a number of ways people can support us at the event including passing challenges, raffles and upfront donations from the teams that enter to play. We encourage as many of you to come and get involved and support the charity. You might even manage to get a photo with the crew.
