INSPIRED by a little-known group of people who, for more than three
decades, have been changing the lives of people with a disability, Michael
is now an ambassador for Technical Aid for the Disabled ACT
Over the past 30 years, more than 300 TADACT volunteers with a background
in wood, metal, design, computing and electronics trades have designed,
adapted or made around 6000 pieces of equipment to make life easier for
older people or those with disability.
"I can't ski, can't climb mountains, can't do a lot of things without
adaptive equipment. That's why I decided to become a TADACT Ambassador.
What they do is important. What they do is life-changing," said Milton.
The organisation recently launched a new website and a new campaign to
attract more attention and more donations.
"TADACT helps hundreds of people every year on a shoestring. Imaging the
difference they could make with a decent injection of funds," said Milton
as he urged people to support the cause.
