Two years ago, Kathryn Rodda was one of the first people to pitch her idea at HBNC’s Community Ideas Pitch Night.

Kathryn had a dream to bring Hope in a Suitcase to Hervey Bay; a charity passionate about showing every child entering the foster care system that they are loved and valued.

Children are given a suitcase of their very own, to ensure they have a safe and secure place for their belongings, to take with them wherever their journey may lead.

Kathryn won the Judges Choice award at Pitch Night, and $2500 to purchase items for the project.

She sat with HBNC CEO Tanya Stevenson to discuss the impact of Hope in a Suitcase in Hervey Bay.
