year the annual Royal Maundy Service was held for the first time at Christ
Church Cathedral, Oxford. The Queen was joined by the Duke of Edinburgh in
to distribute the coins in a tradition which dates back
hundreds of years.
Eighty seven men and 87 women, to mark the Queen's 87th year, were given two purses of money, one red and one white. The red purse contained a £5 coin and a 50p coin commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Queen's coronation in 1953.
The white purse held the famous Maundy money, silver one, two, three and four penny pieces equal to 87 pence.
The recipients were nominated by clergy throughout the diocese of Oxford in recognition of their service to the church and community.
