Herne Hill Velodrome seeking £75,000 to furnish pavillion and finish its renovation

Herne Hill velodrome is something of a legend in the world of British cycling. It was built in 1891, was used to stage the cycling events at the 1948 Olympics, and - by way of its jam-packed programme of events and sessions - is now the only venue from that games still in use today.

After periods of uncertainty for the velodrome in its long history, the success of the 'Save the Herne Hill Velodrome campaign' has seen the venue go from strength to strength in its renovation, the latest development of which is the pavillion. While the building now stands to be completed in 2017, it will still need to be furnished, and The Friends of Herne Hill Velodrome group have started a crowdfunding campaign under the title of 'The Big Finish' in order to do it. 

The campaign has until 31st January to raise the £75,000 it needs, and if you'd like to contribute then you can do so on the crowdfunding page here.
