Everactiv, which is based in Stirling and headed by former professional triathlete Catriona Morrison and business partner Linda Barclay, will support grassroots sports clubs through the donation of a percentage of its profits.

Morrison is a graduate of the Saltire Fellowship and until recently Barclay was a member of the Saltire Foundation mentoring network.
