hyp is proud to announce that in 2021 we are partnering with Harry’s House to help contribute to the work of this wonderful local charity helping sick children and their families in the Hunter region. Harry’s House is a family retreat located at Stockton for families of children living with cancer or for families grieving the loss of a child to cancer within the past 2 years.
In partnering with Harry’s House, we will be donating $1 from every ticket sold to a hyp event in 2021 as well as all proceeds from our annual trivia event to Harry’s House. We hope that our contribution will assist Harry’s House to continue to support families dealing with childhood cancer.
Harry is the eldest son of David and Samantha Meyn of East Maitland. At the age of 6, Harry was diagnosed with a brain tumour and sadly passed away 7 months after diagnosis. He was a gorgeous boy who loved life and had an infectious personality.
Harry lived his short life giving and loving all those around him and is sadly missed. The Harry Meyn Foundation’s vision is to make a difference in people’s lives just as Harry did.
His memories will live forever, particularly through the work of the Harry’s Meyn Foundation.
Harry’s House and Harry’s House Mobile Retreat
Families with children living with cancer often have lengthy stays away from home while receiving treatment and often have to find their own place to stay. The emotional and financial strain can be overwhelming.
Harry’s House Family Retreat provides these families with a beautiful family home while their child is undergoing active treatment or for a family holiday. Harry’s House is located at 22 Maitland Street, Stockton close to the harbour, foreshore park, the beach and the ferry terminal. The family retreat has 3 bedrooms and is fully self-contained with a well-equipped kitchen, laundry and outdoor BBQ area.
Harry’s House Mobile Retreat is a 6 berth Avida (Australian Winnebago) Ceduna Motorhome that families can use for a week long unique holiday experience while spending a relaxing time together.
