Barclays Bank operate a scheme known as 'Matched Fundraising' whereby for every pound one of their employees raises for a selected charity, Barclays will also donate a pound, up to 750. Loppington Village Hall is fortunate to have a Barclays employee as one of their committee members and has been able to take advantage of this initiative. All income is invested in the upkeep and development of the hall and used to stage, host and support events that contribute to the community at large and particular groups within the village.

During the course of the last few years, the Village Hall committee have organised events such as Summer Balls, Christmas Fayres, Race Nights, Quiz Nights, Skittles Competitions, Tea Dancing Afternoons, Bingo Evenings, Karaoke Evenings, Whilst Drives, Flicks in the Sticks and Theatre Presentations, plus much more. The Hall also hosts the Youth Club, WI, Parent and Toddlers Group, Parish Council Meetings plus the recent meeting to decide whether Loppington was willing to participate in the Shropshire County Council's SwitchOn Shropshire Broadplace project.

The Barclays scheme enables each of their employees to take advantage of the Matched Fundraising scheme up to a maximum of 3 times each a year. Angela Jebb said "At Barclays we are committed to communities and we are delighted to be able to work closely with our local community to achieve something which we hope will make a real and lasting difference".

Barclays support and contribution has certainly been fully appreciated by the Village Hall committee and has enabled them to continue to organise high quality events and fun packed evenings enjoyed by the whole village.
