Sainsbury’s Horsham donated refreshments for the annual Horsham District Scout Quiz.

There were eleven teams of scouts ages ten-and-a-half to fifteen. The Quiz had six rounds with subjects from General Knowledge, Pantomime, Sport through to Scouting knowledge. The winning team was from the 1st Roffey Scout troop.

The shield was presented by District Commissioner, Peter Scofield, who thanked everybody for the organisation of the quiz and mentioned the kind donation by Sainsburys for the refreshments.

Sainsbury’s Horsham Store Manager Derek Boarer said: “We wanted to help with the Quiz again this year and we are looking forward to working with more schools and groups going forward”.

Scouting offers an exciting and adventurous programme of activities to develop children and young people mentally, physically, socially and spiritually.

This vital work of preparing young people for adulthood needs adults who have an interest in working with children and young people in a structured programme of learning and activities. It is one of the most rewarding things you can do. It is also very good for your own personal development!

If you or someone you know is interested in finding out more about volunteering as an adult in Scouting you can contact Peter Scofield (District Commissioner – Horsham Scouts) by e-mail at or by telephone on 0779 267 2443.
