Norfolk singer-songwriter Paul Thompson, and his Guinness World Record breaking milk float ‘Bluebell’, are on a mission to raise £5,000 for Cancer Research after the loss of his father. Starting from Norfolk in early June 2017, Paul will be travelling 30 miles per day during the summer at an average speed of 10mph, stopping to play gigs all over the place, including Cambridge and Oxford, in aid of the cancer charity, on his way to Stroud, and on further west.  

 ‘Bluebell’s Busking Bonanza’ will see Paul using Bluebell as an outdoor music stage powered by solar panels.  He will be part of a mini festival organised to support his fundraising plan on the forecourt of the Stroud Sub Rooms on 17th June starting at 11 am.  Also playing will be a feast of talented local musicians: Hattie Briggs will start the day at 11 am - she recently launched her new EP “Hide” in Stroud.  She will be followed by Paul himself, Sophronie - who releases her new album "Remember Home" in Stroud on 1st July, Ethemia - the fab duo from Cirencester,  and Emi McDade who releases her new single "Sweet Return" on 10th June.  After your shop at the Farmer’s Market, please come along and support them all and make a donation into the buckets to help Paul reach his target.   

For further information, go to Paul’s website,, where he’ll be keeping a blog of the journey, and there will also be live ‘Bluebell updates’ on Facebook and Twitter. You can donate to Cancer Research via Paul’s JustGiving Page,
