The Bluebird Care brand name was created around the fascinating 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 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 there was only one name it could be…Bluebird Care was born and where better to celebrate the company’s success than in the very place that the car was built on the King’s Road in Chelsea – The Bluebird Restaurant.
