A man campaigning for a posthumous bravery award for murdered Nottinghamshire jeweller Marian Bates is taking his case to Parliament.
Marian Bates died shielding her daughter
Ray Summers, from Ravenshead, Notts, said Mrs Bates' actions in protecting her daughter from armed robbers deserved national recognition.
Mrs Bates, 64, was shot dead in her shop in Arnold in September 2003 as she shielded daughter Xanthe from raiders.
Peter Williams, 19, will be sentenced for the murder at a later date.
Dean Betton, 24, and Craig Moran, 23, were convicted of plotting to rob Mrs Bates.
Mr Summers has now submitted his case for an award to his MP, Vernon Coaker, who will pass it on to the Department for Constitutional Affairs.
Mr Summers said: "They did say once the trial was over they would give it due consideration. It's now a case of waiting for developments.
"There can be no greater love than a parent laying down their life for a child and this is a classic example of this."
