Residents and carers from more than 20 care homes and extra-care housing schemes from charity The Orders of St John Care Trust added their personal touch to this ox.

The hands bear the marks of a life well-lived, wisdom, comforting touch, and loving care. They symbolise diversity, spirituality, friendship, and unity. They tell individual stories, but also celebrate the power of hands to connect people.


After the trail ends, most of the life-sized oxen (and a selection of mini oxen) will be sold at a hoof-biting live auction to raise crucial funds for Sobell House Hospice.

The lucky new owners will then take their moo-gnificent ox to its forever home.
