Keeping in line with tradition, children from all around London were encouraged to submit a Christmas themed poster that would be used for the Christmas Tree Appeal. Commissioner Cressida Dick picked a winner and three finalists:
Emmanuelle Barakat, from St Vincent de Paul Catholic Primary School
Jason, The Mulberry House School
Dina Hadj Abderrahmane, Wessex Gardens Primary School
Mia Seskauskyte, Mission Grove Primary School
The Christmas Tree Appeal was officially launched outside New Scotland Yard on Tuesday 23 November 2021, with Commissioner Cressida Dick and the winner of the poster competition switching on the Christmas tree lights.
