To celebrate its company’s success, Bluebird Care has held a lunch at the Bluebird Restaurant in London for all the people that have been instrumental in helping the business to succeed.
Guest included the President of the British Franchise Association, Sir Bernard Ingham, Head of Policy for the UK Home Care Association, Colin Angel, Head of Franchising for both NatWest and HSBC Banks as well as the company’s designers, solicitors and their local MP Caroline Dinenage.
The Bluebird Care brand name was created around the story of Donald Campbell’s record breaking Bluebird Car. The revolutionary Bluebird Car achieved fastest car in the world status in 1960. Managing Director of Bluebird Care Paul Tarsey’s family were friends with the Campbell’s and as a youngster Tarsey (pictured top on the right with his wife Lisa and Simon Dalziel) was gripped by the driver’s determination and ultimate endeavour to succeed. Tarsey considered Donald Campbell to be a true sporting hero and when he set up his care at home company with his wife Lisa in 2004 he decided to name the company after his childhood hero.
In order to celebrate the company’s success Tarsey purposely chose the location of the very place that the car was built on the King’s Road in Chelsea, The Bluebird Restaurant.
