Volunteer to receive royal silver coins

A PENSIONER charity worker from Holt has been nominated to receive The Maundy Money from the Queen at Windsor this Easter.

George Kent, 85 boxes up all sorts of goods, second hand and new, to help the island of Dominica and stores the boxes around their own home until it is time to fill the container which goes out annually to the Caribbean island.

He will enjoy a day at Windsor Castle where he will receive specially minted coins from Her Majesty The Queen at the annual Maundy service.

Every year, a number of men and women equal to the monarch’s age receive Maundy money from the Queen at a service on Maundy Thursday.

Mr Kent is a weekly attender at St Katharine’s church.

He said: ““It was a lovely surprise to be nominated. I feel honoured.”

“Our cleaning lady will drive me up to Windsor in the early morning. My solicitor son will come down from London to join me with my granddaughter, Angela.”
