How it works

85 schools and community groups across the county have officially joined the moo-vement! Every Learning Programme partner will receive their very own mini ox which will be painted and displayed in mini herds as part of the trail. Our herd are now busy fundraising to raise vital funds for Sobell House Hospice, who provide compassionate care to people with life-limiting illnesses in Oxfordshire.

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, learn new things, and support a local cause.

HEAR FROM A SCHOOL

“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.”
