The Friends of Herne Hill Velodrome have extended their crowdfunding campaign to fit out the new pavilion after they smashed through the initial target in less than a week.
The campaign, named ‘The Big Finish’, sought to raise £75,000. It did exactly that – and then some. The money already raised will be used to furnish the club room, grandstand, kitchen, offices and changing rooms within the swanky new pavilion that has been under construction for the last few months.
The London facility achieved its target at lightning pace through donations – each rewarded with keepsakes ranging from t-shirts to limited edition Condor bikes and named family seats in the new grandstand.
The campaign will finish on December 24 at midday, and has been renamed the ‘Unknown Distance’. However, the figure dancing in the pupils of the FHHV fundraiser’s eyes is £100k – with extra money going towards exciting additions such as mountain bike trails and a PA system.
