The businesses - Larry O'Keeffe Furniture, Tangled Yarns, Red Nose Wine, Yesterdays World and Pet Planet  - have teamed up with Rotary Clonmel to support local charities and to give back to the community at this time of the year. 

These businesses have committed to pledge a percentage of sales over the December 8th weekend, (Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th).     

Deserving charities will be nominated by Rotary and include St. Vincent De Paul, South Tipp Hospice and Soup Kitchen.
