Craig Macdonald Award

Technology for good in Westminster

PDT launches new grant for young people in memory of its Vice Chair

PDT has launched a new grant for young people or youth organisations using technology for good in Westminster.

The Craig Macdonald Award will be given to the person or organisation who best demonstrates how they would use technology either for community benefit, or to meaningfully improve a young life. It is open both to Westminster residents between the age of 16-25, or organisations who serve them, and in the first year will constitute a one-off award for £2,000.

The award is named after PDT’s former Vice Chair, Craig Macdonald, who died of a heart attack in March 2020 at the age of just 45. 

Abi Carter, Chair of PDT, said, “Craig played a huge part in PDT during his four years on the Board, and our devastation at his death led to a determination that his name should live on for good in the communities we serve. He was a passionate advocate for the benefits of technology, and cared so much about improving the lives of those from disadvantaged backgrounds, so we feel an annual award is a fitting way to carry on his good work.”

Applicants are encouraged to explain:

  • Who or what the award is for
  • Why they should be awarded the grant
  • What the grant will be spent on
  • What impact the award will have
