Achievement Through Co-operation

working with other organisations to achieve more.

Currie Balerno Rotary is always ready to co-operate with other organisations to provide help where it is needed and achieves so much more through that co-operation.

We are represented on the Advisory Board of the Turing Trust, which provides computers for schools in Africa and on the Committee of the Pentlands Ukrainian Support Group, supporting Ukrainians in our community.

We support and work with the two local Food Banks – Community for Food and the Wester Hailes Food Bank – both financially and with practical help.

We have a close relationship with ReusingIT, the charity founded and run by Currie’s own Ross Cockburn, which has refurbished thousands of discarded computers for use in educational establishments both here and internationally.

We work with the Pentlands Eco Network in the planting of trees and enhancement of the local environment. Most notably we have a partnership with Balerno Village Trust in running the hugely successful Pentland Community Chest, supporting schools, charities and local good causes.


And, of course, we have the support of the wider Rotary at District level and internationally.

We achieve so much more through partnership and co-operation.
