Tributes pour in for Patrick Sandeman
Lea and Sandeman closed their offices on the 4th October as a Thanksgiving Mass in memory of Patrick Sandeman took place. Tributes continue to pour in for the co-founder of Lea & Sandeman wine merchants who died in a tragic sky-diving accident on Saturday 22nd September 2012. In particular Jancis Robinson wrote a lovely obituary which Patrick's business partner Charles Lea thanked her for. She said a bright light had been extinguished. The family asked those attending the mass not to wear funeral attire and has chosen the Southern Spinal Injuries Trust for donations. There are books of condolence in the Fulham Road and Barnes shops and if members of the trade wish to write a personal letter to Sandeman's wife Katie, they can do so by marking it ‘personal' and sending it via the Fulham road shop.
