New home for Chapman & Frazer Commercial Real Estate One of the Central Coast’s oldest real estate businesses has relocated to new premises in Gosford following the sale of the busi- ness early last year. Established in 1956, Chapman & Frazer has been a fixture at 83 Mann Street, Gosford 1983. The history of the business goes back even further to 1888 when Fred Wheeler the first real estate business in Gosford sold out to the new firm. The move to 27 Dane Drive, at the gate- way to Gosford, in late January follows the completion of the sale of the business to Daniel Mason and Chris Watson in early 2020 with the retirement of long time owner Rob Wilcox.

AdviceCo to be a major supporter of Cerebral Palsy Alliance expansion on the Central Coast Cerebral Palsy Alliance has a therapy centre in Tuggerah that is bursting at the seams. Those who require support on the Coast far outnumber the capacity of the facility, so it is with great excitement that an additional new therapy centre is being established on Karalta Rd, Erina. It is supported by a number of generous individual donations, and a $10,000 dollar- match programme by local accountancy firm AdviceCo, and their partner the Count Charitable Foundation. Set to be opened on 8 March 2021, 180 families from the southern end of the coast will be able to access services from the more conveniently located facility, reduc- ing travel times and increasing access to therapists. Why it is so important: Every 20 hours, an Australian baby is born with cerebral palsy. It is the most common physical disability in childhood that is ‘incur- able’, yet not unchanging. Early and frequent therapy can mean the difference between a life of emotional and physical hardship, and a quality of life filled with hope, progress and happiness for the whole family. More help is needed: To set the Erina centre up with the neces- sary bespoke equipment for the therapy intensive programmes, physiotherapy, occupational, speech therapy and exer- cise physiology services, social skills pro- grammes, youth programmes, and social and community supports, the Cerebral Palsy Alliance needs to raise a whopping $203, 500. AdviceCo and the Count Charitable Foundation have joined forces to dollar match any donation up to the value of $10,000. AdviceCo is a leading accountancy and financial planning firm on the Central Coast. 28 teammembers and Coasties are passionate about supporting the local area to be a place where everyone can thrive and enjoy life.
