They were entertained by songs from Bishop Challoner Catholic Collegiate School’s choir and met the winner of the Mayor’s Christmas card design competition, Kaiser Henry.
Mayor Lutfur Rahman said: “Our faith communities play a key role throughout the year in supporting the needy and vulnerable in our community as we work together to create a better Tower Hamlets.
“I believe this partnership between the council and faith groups in Tower Hamlets is vital.
