Friends of Chatterbus

Friends of Chatterbus is a new initiative, soon to be a registered charity, which was set up for a very simple reason: if Chatterbus is to stay on the road, we need to raise thousands of pounds every year.

You will have seen from the rest of the website that this is a fantastic community asset which has become a lifeline for many people in our community who have no other means of making the simple journeys that the rest of us take for granted.

However, even with the income derived from impressive passenger numbers - in the first 14 months of operation Chatterbus provided over 17,000 passenger journeys – and generous funding from local authorities, we cannot fully cover the ongoing costs of running this bus service. Each of those sources contribute about a third of the £75,000 it takes to operate the bus, leaving £25,000 to be raised every year. We are extremely grateful that local businesses have seen the value of Chatterbus and are getting behind us with sponsorship, but to keep the wheels of Chatterbus turning, we must seek support from all parts of our community, and we need your help.

Become a Friend of Chatterbus

There are many ways in which you can show your support for Chatterbus.

  • Make a regular donation by standing order

A steady income we can rely upon enables us to plan for the future, and reduces administration costs. Standing orders are easy and efficient for the donor too. Any amount, donated monthly, quarterly or annually, will be gratefully received. £5 per month is less than the price of two large high street coffees, and barely more than a pint in a Cobham pub! Fill in the Standing Order Form available here or from our treasurer, Leonard Beighton, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 01932 863516.

  • Make a one-off donation

  • Organise a Chat for Chatterbus coffee morning

Rolling coffee mornings are a great way of raising money and spreading the Chatterbus word as well as getting together with friends. See our leaflet Chat for Chatterbus for ideas and support here, or contact Jane at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or on 01932 863304.

  • Join a list of volunteers we can call on to help at fund- raising events

During the year we plan to boost our funds with individual events. Can you help with organisation, publicity, or by sparing a couple of hours on the day to help with the running? Please contact Jane at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or on 01932 863304.
