Twenty-one years ago, Tommy Callagher started work in Liverpool as the city centre milkman. Through this new status, he became Liverpool’s number one charity fundraiser, his boundless energy and commitment earned him the accolade ‘Milkman of the Year’ and he became a local celebrity. He painted his milk float gold - a shining symbol around the city representing the lives he wanted to transform.
In June 2008 Tommy went into retirement and his milkman memorabilia is now relegated to the loft. He is no longer ‘Milkman Tommy’, just Tommy Callagher.
