Children have paid their respect to Lee Rigby by making a memorial board which is displayed in Loxford Park, Ilford.
The project, commissioned by the British Pakistani Christian Association (BPCA), involved a series of spray art workshops with children.
The final design combines all the elements the young people wanted to see in a memorial to the soldier who was killed in an unprovoked attack.
Chairman of the BPCA, Wilson Chowdhry, said: “The attack on Lee Rigby shocked me to the core
“We have launched our project to remind people that this attack was undertaken by extremists and not any particular faith group.

“We call for tolerance and peace, and for people of all diversities to stand together against fundamentalism of any type.”
The board will be displayed in Loxford Park until mid-March.
