Who’s in the herd?

85 local schools and community groups are taking part in this ox-traordinary adventure, who have each painted a mini oxen to display on the trail in mini herds.

Through OxTrail, we are reaching 37,580 young people in Oxfordshire, giving them the opportunity to use their creativity, engage in a community-focussed project, and learn something new.

Making a difference

OxTrail is raising money for Sobell House Hospice, and our Learning Programme participants have been going above and beyond to reach their fundraising targets.

So far, the schools and community groups in the herd have raised over £70,000, which could fund all of our services for three days, providing end of life care to over 650 patients throughout Oxfordshire at any one time.

Fundraisers have included an overnight swim led by Girlguiding Oxfordshire, a car wash led by Aureus School, a social enterprise project led by Headington School, and a sponsored walking challenge and OxTrail cookie sale led by Sunrise Nursery.

“Garsington Primary School is very excited to be part of OxTrail 2024. We are all keen artists and love to be creative. All of the children and staff will be involved in the designing and creating of our unique ox, and we are looking forward to people from Oxfordshire and around the world seeing our work.

At our school we have Red Kite values and this project particularly helps us to show enrichment, enthusiasm and teamwork. Garsington children regularly raise money for charities and we are keen to raise as much money as we can for Sobell House Hospice. We are all looking forward to taking part in the trail and seeing our ox as part of the herd.”
