How do I find an internship with a 2:2 in first year?

So I've just finished my first year doing maths at Cambridge and got a 2:2. I want to do an internship next summer at a quant firm but I don't think I have a realistic chance so should I not bother applying to internships and do some programming project or something instead?

Do anything else to beef up the CV; take online courses, summer courses, start at smaller firms, learn a language. You could also see if some masters will take you before you apply for internships.
