Ursula Sims-Williams News 1 Comment

We are sorry to announce that our founding Trustee Dr. Bridget Allchin passed away on 27th June at Broadland View Care Home in Norwich peacefully after a short illness aged 90.

The funeral will be at the West Chapel in Cambridge Crematorium at 1.30 pm on Thursday 20th July 2017 followed by a reception at Wolfson College, Cambridge at 3 pm.

Her family have asked that no flowers should be sent, but donations for Alzheimer’s Research can be made c/o Gordon Barber Funeral Director, 2 St Williams Way, Norwich NR7 0AW.

We’ll be writing a full appreciation of Bridget’s life and contribution to the AIIT, but meanwhile do read Danika Parikh’s piece written in celebration of Bridget’s 90th birthday last February.

    We are also hoping to hold a memorial service for Bridget in the autumn as a celebration of her life for people who can’t make the funeral in July.
    Regards
    William Allchin
