Tooting MP Sadiq Khan has been named the Patchwork Foundation’s People’s Choice MP of the Year, in an annual ceremony held in the Speaker’s House in Parliament
Through the MP of the Year Awards, the Patchwork Foundation highlights and acknowledges those MPs – nominated by individuals and grassroots community organisations, and subsequently picked by an independent panel of judges – that have excelled in representing such communities.
The People’s Choice is their most prestigious award and was presented by news presenter Martyn Lewis. This is the second MP of the Year Award Sadiq has won – he was named Labour MP and Overall MP of the Year in 2013.
The Patchwork Foundation aims to promote and encourage the positive integration of deprived and minority communities into British political society.
