Maundy Money

Maundy Money

On Monday 10th April during Activities, one of our Residents, Betty Steele, gave a very interesting talk about the Maundy Money that she received from the Queen at Guildford Cathedral in 2006, recognising the huge amount of fundraising that she had organised through her church and her tireless dedication to the community. Betty was joined by her two daughters, Christine and Delia as pictured and she brought along the coins she received, along with letters from the Queen prior to the occasion.

Our Chaplain, Angela Townshend, who was visiting Birtley on the afternoon of the talk, happened to be a Canon at Guildford Cathedral in 2006 and was involved in the ceremony. She was able to add some very amusing anecdotes relating to the rehearsal the day before! 

The afternoon was extremely interesting and enjoyed by over 20 Residents. Our huge thanks go to Betty and her daughters for taking the time to share these memories with us all.
