VALE – Sandra Richards

It is with great sadness that we advise of the passing of Sandra Richards.

Sandra was the wife of Rick and mother of Simon, Adam and Debbie.

It would be hard to recall a family that has had as much longevity and prominence in the Australian Newsagency Industry.

Sandra & Rick first owned and operated the Moe Newsagency and then set the world alight with their ownership of Clayton Newsagency where they were awarded Victorian & Australian Newsagency of the year twice!  A feat that is so far been unparalleled.

They also served the Industry, with Rick serving on the VANA Board as Vice Chairman for many years and being awarded life membership of VANA.

The Board and Staff of VANA would like to extend our deepest sympathy to Rick, Simon and the wider Richards family and friends.
