Queen awards hospital volunteer Maundy Money

02 Apr 2015 11:39:09

 Today (2 April 2015) Rotherham Hospital volunteer, Janet Vout, will be one of 178 local people to receive Maundy Money from Her Majesty The Queen.

Maundy Money is traditionally given out on Maundy Thursday, the Thursday before Easter and this year the ceremony will take place at Sheffield Cathedral.

Janet was assistant chaplain at Rotherham Hospital Chapel until she retired in 2004. She volunteers at the hospital twice a month to help patients get to Sunday church services and to provide assistance to the chaplaincy team.

The Queen will give Maundy Money, a set of 178 specially made coins, 89 to women and 89 for men – one for each year of her age. The coins are awarded in recognition of each of the chosen individual’s services to the church and to the South Yorkshire community.
