The bulk of our income is currently provided by our contract with Suffolk County Council, a grant from Norfolk County Council, fare revenues, donations and fundraising.

Small grants and admin cost grants

Several organisations give us small grants or contributions to our administrative costs including:

  • South Norfolk Council
  • Bungay Medical Centre Charitable Trust
  • League of Friends of Beccles and District War Memorial Hospital


As a non-profit organisation we are always seeking methods of meeting our costs.  Fund-raising is increasingly important in the present time of financial constraint.

The 100 Club

The 100 club – which, strictly speaking, has more than 100 members – is one of our major ways of fund-raising.  Members pay £1 per month for each share, payable normally by standing order.  A draw takes place monthly, on the last Wednesday of the month, when two numbers are drawn.  The first receives a prize of £50 and the second a prize of £25.  In December there is one additional prize of £100.

The draw is performed by whoever happens to call into the office on the last Wednesday of the month and is supervised by the staff members.  Each month’s winners are published on this page of the website.

New members are always welcomed; they will have their numbers allocated and included in the next draw.


Donations can be made by calling the office.
