Romford MP Andrew Rosindell has put forward a motion for debate in the House of Commons to thank a charity for its efforts during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Conservative politician submitted an early day motion thanking Havering Volunteer Centre for working "tirelessly" since the outbreak began.
The Recorder reported last week that the charity has mobilised more than 120 volunteers to support the borough's two vaccination centres.
Mr Rosindell's motion also commended HVC for co-ordinating the delivery of food hampers at Christmas to isolated and vulnerable residents.
He said: "The Havering Volunteer Centre has been the very best of our community in the past year or so.

"I have been endlessly blown away by their extraordinary work and it is only right that Parliament recognises this."
