• WHO WE ARE

    Sam Roddy

     
    The Little General

    Sam was smart and quick witted, a lovable larrikin, a fearless little footballer and a natural musician. Sam had immeasurable potential that he never got to live out. He was a great mate to those lucky enough to know him, but he tragically passed away in 2006.

     

    Sam left an impression in his 18 short years, and it has been decided the best way to honour this, is to help other young people in the Tumut community to reach their potential through the Songs for Sam Scholarship.

    Our Mission

    The Songs for Sam mission is to organise not-for-profit events which celebrate the life of much loved community member of the Tumut region, Sam Roddy.


    These events aspire to promote the importance of inclusion and support for young people facing the issues of growing up in a small community.
    Money raised will benefit the future of the community by encouraging and empowering local people to follow their dreams.


    We ultimately want to assist individuals in regional areas to realise their potential, creatively, socially, emotionally and physically through the creation of the Songs for Sam Scholarship Initiative.
