The St John youth section held a quiz night to raise funds towards taking Badgers & Cadets to the 2024 St John National Youth Camp in Oxfordshire.

Over 100 quizzers took part on the evening and were treated to hearty ploughman’s platters whilst battling through the rounds in the closely contested evening of fun. The final victory went to the Office Ninjas team who took first place in the rankings by just 3 points.

The evening raised just over £2,000 which will go directly towards this year’s trip to the National Youth Camp.

The Camp brings together St John youth members from across Europe and is an opportunity for St John Guernsey’s young people to meet and work alongside the wider St John organisation from around the world. It is an invaluable experience that helps develop interpersonal skills such as teamwork, communication, and leadership, whilst also affording the Badgers & Cadets the opportunity to explore new activities such as water sports, archery, climbing and high ropes.

“I’m so pleased to say that Saturday’s quiz night was such a huge success”, said Heather Langlois, Chief Executive of the St John Guernsey charity. “Our training hall was buzzing all evening long and the competitive spirit in the room was palpable!  I’d like to thank all of the sponsors who supported our event from food to raffle prizes and everything in between.  Their support made for a fantastic evening.  I’d also like to thank all of our volunteers and young people who worked so hard to put this event together.  They are heart and soul of this organisation and I commend their perseverance, positive attitudes, and unwavering dedication to this organisation and the community we serve”.

St John Guernsey would also like to thank all of the businesses and individuals who gave their time or donated items for the event and to everyone who attended.
