RJS Waste Management Sponsors OxTrail 2024.

You herd it here first, RJS Waste Management Oxford is sponsoring OxTrail. This new animaltastic art exhibition is coming soon to the streets of Oxfordshire. Our Sales Director Tony Wells is super ox-cited we can milk this opportunity to support the local community.

What’s OxTrail?

Imagine a herd of 30 life-sized and mini oxen decorated in wildly wonderful ways grazing their way across Oxfordshire. From 6 July to 7 September 2024, you’re in for a bountiful bovine treat!

OxTrail is designed to celebrate the culture, places, and people that make Oxfordshire special. Each ox sculpture will be unique, designed by a selection of artists and local schools.

Positioned mootifully around the streets of Oxfordshire and beside iconic landmarks, visitors will have a chance to follow the herd and admire the art.

It’s great to hear that Oxford Brookes is the official Learning Programme Partner for OxTrail. Over 80 schools and community groups will decorate their mini ox to display in mini herds across the county – an amoos-bouche for trail followers!

OxTrail aims to raise money for Sobell House Hospice. This Oxford-based charity provides specialist palliative care and support to adult patients and their families, friends and carers.

How’s RJS Waste Management helping

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Property Formula and Oxford Property Consulting to milk this local community sponsorship opportunity and shake things up.

Joining various local and national businesses, we have the pleasure of sponsoring one of 30 ox-ordinary sculptures. We can’t wait to see our brilliant bovine dressed up to the nines and in situ.

RJS Waste Management doesn’t just support local football and ice hockey teams, we also think about the futures of our local communities. The number of people needing vital end-of-life care in England will rise around 55% by 2030. This means the demand for hospice care could also double.

Sobell House must increase its annual fundraising to meet these needs and provide a service to those in Oxfordshire.

How did this all come about? Wild in Art events creatively connect businesses, artists and communities. The producer of OxTrail has helped raise over £26.3 million for charitable causes through auctions. They’ve also paved the way for many more people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to experience art in non-traditional settings.

These art trails provide platforms for artists to showcase their work. They’ve already contributed over £4.3 million to creative communities. And the learning programmes have engaged more than 1.2 million young people.

RJS Waste Management’s Sales Director Tony Wells says: “We’re excited to be forming a mini herd with our business associates to sponsor one of OxTrail’s bold and brilliant sculptures.

“We look forward to engaging with more of the Oxfordshire community and helping raise the crucial funds needed for Sobell House Hospice and their important work.

“Keep an eye on social media for the reveal of our ox’s design. You can also follow #OxTrail2024 for the latest event news”.
