Our local MP, Bim Afolami, was named Conservative Newcomer MP of the Year by the Patchwork Foundation.
On receiving the award, Bim said, "I am so delighted to have won this award. Since being elected, two of my major campaigns have been in improving access to the best medicines for my constituents with cystic fibrosis, as well as helping people with mental health problems. I take my responsibilities to marginalised groups extremely seriously.
I have also worked to help improve the situation for refugees who find themselves in Britain – and supporting the charities that work with them. I look forward to engaging with all of these groups more in my time as an MP."
