CURRIE and BALERNO ROTARY CLUB
Currie and Balerno Rotary Club now hold their meetings at Kingsknowe Golf Club every Wednesday from 7pm to 8.30pm
Currie Balerno Rotary Club was formed in 1981 when its members were drawn primarily from these two areas. However membership is not restricted on geographical grounds and they now have members from many other localities. Consideration was given recently to changing the name of the Club to reflect the wider membership but the members voted to retain the Currie Balerno name with its proud history. The club is part of a worldwide voluntary organisation of 1.2 million men and women across 170 countries. They raise funds for local, national and international projects. Currently, they are lead club for the Freedom From Fistula Foundation which is training midwives in Malawi to help prevent fistula formation in mothers who have difficult births. We have secured a global grant from Rotary worth around $200,000 to aid in this programme.
Local projects include the flowers at Currie, CB News distribution, Riding for the Disabled support, Spectacle collections, Young Musician of the Year and the Rotary Youth Leadership Award scheme. We also support young athletes. International projects include ShelterBox (which sends aid to disaster areas) and the Turing Trust (which sends computers to Ghana schools).
