About us News Pitch Night success story: Hope in a Suitcase 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.
