From Phil Medhurst, his son, 25 August 2012I'm contacting you with sad news. Unfortunately one of your old boys passed away last week. Anthony Leonard Medhurst attended the school from 1936-1945 and went on to set up his own business as a shoe repairer after receiving his training at Chailey. It was his wish that all donations received at his funeral service should be passed on to your organisation, so that he could show his appreciation for all the help he was given to lead as normal a life as possible.Anthony Leonard Medhurst.
