  • Donate a camel with the Oxfam ‘Christmas Unwrapped’ package

    It’s nearly time to start thinking about your Christmas shopping… but don’t panic, Oxfam have teamed up with Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott Hotel to offer a more relaxing way to pick your presents this year while helping fight poverty at the same time.

    The ‘Christmas Unwrapped‘ package offers guests a chance to contribute a useful gift to support some of the poorest families across the world.  The package, available from 1 December, includes an overnight stay for two, afternoon tea and a £25 Selfridges shopping voucher to kickstart your shopping spree. In addition you have the option to give a goat, donkey, camel, assistance with teacher training or help with medical costs.

    The hotel is ideally located just a short walk from the bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street, the prestigious brands of Bond Street and neighbour to the bespoke boutiques of Mayfair.

    To ease the festive shopping rage you will also have access to Selfridges VIP cloakroom to store your shopping and coats, and can enjoy a yummy champagne afternoon tea in The Park room while the Concierge collects your shopping from the store and delivers it to your room.   

    Prices start from £400 (inc. VAT) for a one night stay in a deluxe room on a B&B basis, to book call 0207 4996363 or log on to
