Nadia Whittome, MP for Nottingham East, called it an ‘absolute honour’ to be nominated for the prestigious People’s Choice MP of the Year 2020 in the Patchwork Foundation awards.
The awards are run by The Patchwork Foundation, a charity that champions underrepresented, minority or disadvantaged communities in the UK and gives individuals, and those from grassroot organisations, an opportunity to recognise the MPs that have worked particularly hard for their community.
The People’s Choice award winner is chosen by members of the public and the winner will be announced later this year.
Ms Whittome said: “I am honoured to have been nominated for an award by the Patchwork Foundation, an organisation dedicated to strengthening democracy and engaging young people in decision making.
“I will always use my platform to be a strong voice for Nottingham East in Parliament as well as for tackling the climate and environment emergency, improving workers’ rights and for the eradication of child poverty.”
If you would like to vote for Nadia Whittome to become the MP of the Year please vote on the Patchwork Foundation’s website, which can be found here.
Voting for the People’s Choice Award is open until midnight on August 30, 2020. Winners shall be announced at the awards ceremony towards the end of the year
