As a world-renowned athlete and ambassador for the benefits of taking part in sport from a young age, Eve is well-placed to work with us and the whole Live Active team to support the people of Perth & Kinross in their aspirations to live active lives.  Her knowledge from curling across the globe will be invaluable in assisting LAL refining the design details of PH2O to attract curlers to international events in Perth. We also appreciate how busy Eve and all our Directors are with their many work and personal commitments, so it is wonderful that she is able to make this commitment to her local leisure trust.”
