Ox In A Box is so proud to announce our new competition with Patron Oxford to help raise money for the amazing Thomas Franks Foundation.

Patron Oxford will supply 12 of their delicious homemade doughnuts to one lucky winner in Oxfordshire on Saturday August 29 to help end food poverty.

Patron Oxford is a new doughnut delivery company started in Oxford during lockdown and has become an immediate success, selling out every week.

Run by chef Frideswide O’Neill, who was named after Oxford’s patron saint, and her partner Sam Reed, the English doughnuts they make and deliver by bike are absolutely delicious, and their menu and repertoire changes every week.

Think rhubarb jam ord custard, pinto bean and chocolate, homemade plum jam or lemon curd and you’ll get an idea what you are in for!
