She recently received the award from the Speaker of the House of Commons John Simon Bercow.
“I was so proud to receive a certificate for Labour Newcomer of the Year and to speak to the brilliant volunteers about life as an MP”, reads a facebook post of Tulip, daughter of Sheikh Rehana.
The Patchwork Foundation is a UK-wide organisation that supports the integration of different communities into British democracy and civil society.
