Friends of Chatterbus
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.
How is this essential service funded? Fare revenues from our many loyal passengers (approximately 19,000 passengers journeys are made a year) and support from our local government sponsors cover about two thirds of our operating costs. This leaves a substantial gap which must be filled by donations from other sponsors, local businesses and residents in order to keep the bus on the road. Friends of Chatterbus has been set up so that local people can show their support through donations.

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!
- Make a one-off donation
- Organise a Chat for Chatterbus coffee morning
- Join a list of volunteers we can call on to help at fund- raising events
Cobham needs Chatterbus and Chatterbus needs you. Thank you in advance!
