Alannah passed away on 26 December 2021, aged 90.

Wiltshire Air Ambulance chief executive David Philpott said: “Alannah always took great interest in following the development of the charity from Dick’s original initiative as a joint venture with the NHS and the Wiltshire Constabulary to its present-day independent operation with its own helicopter and airbase.”

Richard Youens, the charity’s president, said: “Alannah will always be warmly remembered for her keen support, and our thoughts are with her children Susan, Nicola, Philippa and Jo together with all members of the Riseley-Prichard family.”

Dick, who was a senior doctor in the RAF and held the rank of Air Vice Marshal, was closely supported by Alannah throughout his career. He passed away in 2017.

He was involved with Wiltshire Air Ambulance’s formation in 1990 and co-founded the Wiltshire Air Ambulance Appeal – the original charity set up to raise vital funds to pay to keep the air ambulance flying.
