Dr Strode was one of the kindest men I ever met. No one who came in contact with him at Chailey would ever forget him. He brought a ray of sunshine into a sometimes grim regime. After leaving Chailey he founded The Leyden House Trust, which provided a holiday home, Leyden House, for Chailey children who had no permanent home and had to remain at Chailey during the school holidays. Leyden House closed in 2008 and the proceeds have now benefited Chailey and other charities as related in the newspaper cuttings below from the Mid-Sussex Times (3rd October 2013).
