Friends of Chatterbus

Be a Chatterbus ChampionFriends of Chatterbus is a new initiative 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.

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.

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!

Download the "Be a Chatterbus Champion" leaflet and send us your completed Standing Order Form or request a leaflet from our treasurer, Leonard Beighton via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by phone on 01932 863516.

  • Make a one-off donation

These can be made either via online banking, through the Chatterbus page at Virgin Money Giving or by cheque. Download the "Be a Chatterbus Champion" leaflet for more details.

  • 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.

Cobham needs Chatterbus and Chatterbus needs you. Thank you in advance!
