Meet Bluebell’s Team!

It’s not just the team on Bluebell involved in this epic adventure, without the help, determination and countless months of work of those behind the scenes, this 7,000 coastal path walk would not be possible.

Meet our Team! All are volunteers who work tirelessly for the Charity Daft as a Brush. And our special thanks to Stagecoach who kindly donated Bluebell bus.
