As ongoing supporters of the Friends of Herne Hill Velodrome - through your bike storage hook or season hire at the track - we wanted to give you a quick heads up about the launch of an important crowdfunding campaign: The Big Finish.
It goes public at 11am this Friday - so please share nothing on social media until then - but as regular users of HHV we wanted you all to be amongst those who see it first (apologies for any cross-posting - if you've received a similar email through your FHHV membership or club affiliation).
The story is: Everybody's Pavilion is nearly ready but we need to kit it out. We need to raise £75K to buy all the stuff a top of the range sports building requires. All the details - including our campaign video featuring lots of familiar faces - can be found here: http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/thebigfinish
Get what you fancy but keep it under your Friends cap until Friday...then tell the whole world!!
A new pavilion was the big dream of the Save the Herne Hill Velodrome Campaign. We’re nearly there. This is the lunge for the line. This is: The Big Finish
The video is fantastic.
Done. Thanks for sharing Ved.
Club in to get Wayne a seat?
I'll be up for that too.
Just about to suggest the seat idea as well .
@ved has already reserved a seat for Wayne incase the club want to do this. I think its a good idea and so yes let's get one for Wayne.
Literally just texted Ricky about this same idea.
@Ricky can we send monies to the club Paypal account, which can then be used to pay FHHV?
Can we make it even more special? Grupetto colours? Bobby Hoops could do a spray job.
Sweet. Pledged some cash. I might ask our Finance Director if NYD can make a pledge, see if we can get a cheesey seat or something!
yes you can, message me what you want to donate, I'll pay for the seat and then ask you for payment once all done.
Can choose a name later but maximum of 25 characters.
Thanks Anton, I've edited your post but thanks. (RS)
Can you post PayPal account details in this thread?
Maybe £15 each? Then only need 10 contributors. Unless we want to up it a bit and just donate cash on behalf of the club anyway?
I'm in. I think it's an excellent idea and a great way of remembering Wayne at a venue I know he loved.
How much per donation @ricky?
Great idea I'm in too
No set limit, just message me what you want, and I'll keep a note. If we get more than £150 in total we can see about doing something else with them or simply buying a second seat.
PayPal address is:
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
