Maundy Money

Member, David Cliffe, was a recipient of the 2021 Maundy Money.

Every year, on Maundy Thursday, the Queen distributes special Maundy money to pensioners in a service which commemorates Jesus washing the feet of the Apostles at the Last Supper.

Recipients of Maundy money are nominated by their local dioceses for contributions to their local church and community.

As with last year, the Royal Maundy Service 2021 could not go ahead at St George’s Chapel, Windsor, as planned, so the Maundy money was blessed at the Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, before being posted to recipients alongside a letter from The Queen.

This meant recipients could still receive their Maundy money and purses, and instead mark the special occasion from their homes.
