About the AUCTION

The much-anticipated live auction is OxTrail’s final event, which takes place after the farewell weekend.

Your bids will help to raise vital funds for Sobell House Hospice, so we can continue to support families in Oxfordshire with all of the care, comfort, and compassion they need when facing a life-limiting illness.

Every life-sized ox will go under the hammer in a bidding spectacular before ‘herding’ off to its forever home. Don’t miss a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own an OxTrail ox!


It is estimated that the number of people needing vital end of life care in England will rise by 55% by 2030 and as a result, the demand for hospice care is expected to grow at a similar rate. Assuming that NHS funding will not increase in line with the demand, in order to be able to provide a service to all that need it within Oxfordshire, we are likely to need to double our annual fundraising by 2030.

That’s why it’s never been a more important time for us to raise the vital funds that keep our hospice up and running.
