Canberra Raiders halfback Sam Williams has been selected as an ambassador for Ronald McDonald House Canberra.
The returning Raiders playmaker who originally comes from Cooma, the largest town in the Snowy Mountains region and the gateway to the state’s alpine area, is an ideal candidate for the ambassadorial role with his connections into regional NSW which is a key area of development for the charity.
26-year-old Williams who has played over 100 matches across the NRL and English Super League competitions, 66 of which have been with the Green Machine, said he was excited to be involved with RMHC Canberra.
“I’ve been involved with a few smaller programs before but nothing of this magnitude,” Williams said. “It’s great to be back in Canberra and I can’t wait to start being involved with Ronald McDonald House Canberra.
“The service they provide for Canberra’s surrounding region, including my hometown of Cooma, is invaluable.”
Ronald McDonald House is a charity which focuses on providing a home away from home for families of seriously ill children being treated at nearby hospitals www.rmhc.org.au/our-programs/houses/canberra
Ronald McDonald House Canberra opened in late 2012 and has been looking after Canberra’s surrounding regions ever since.
There are 16 Ronald McDonald Houses in Australia and more than 360 houses worldwide.
