Charity Digital News enjoyed a great day at London’s BT Tower to witness the launch of this year’s Tech4Good Awards.
With some inspirational talks from the team at AbilityNet and some former winners, including What 3 Words and the infectiously enthusiastic Rachel Moat, it served as a testament to the amazing work these awards represent.
