Telecoms company Talktalk is offering £60,000-worth of technology grants to UK charities and community groups.

The firm is inviting not-for-profit organisations to enter its second annual Innovation in the Community awards, held in collaboration with digital technology charity Citizens Online.

Five overall winners will also get individual workshops with co-founder Martha Lane Fox.
