No couch potatoes! Kent Spud girls out to smash the London Marathon…

Keep your eyes peeled for The Potato Shop’s Nicola Crawley and Provenance Potatoes’ Tracy Bush who are running the London Marathon this April!

Both ladies are involved in the growing and marketing of Kent potatoes and are fuelling their training runs with this versatile, delicious and nutritious carbohydrate. Potatoes are a great source of fibre are low in fat and have more potassium than a banana, they say – packed with energy and exercise boosting vitamins!

Tracy is supporting the Dementia Revolution, a year-long initiative between Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK to raise awareness and much needed funds for dementia research. She is running in memory of her father who passed away last July and was diagnosed with dementia three years ago.

Anyone wishing to donate and support Nicola and Tracy can do so at Any and all donations, no matter how small, will be much appreciated!
