Queen to visit Oxford
THE Queen will visit Oxford to hand out Maundy Money to pensioners from Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.
Every year the Queen visits a UK cathedral or abbey to give out Maundy coins to elderly people in recognition of their service to their community and church.
This year’s visit, on Thursday, March 28, will be the first time she has visited Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford for the annual ceremony.
Buckingham Palace will invite 87 men and 87 women from the Oxford Diocese, in line with the Queen’s age, to receive the special coins.
The Dean of Christ Church the Very Rev Christopher Lewis, said: "It is great news that Her Majesty is coming to Oxford's cathedral for this profound service.”
