Platform 8: The Travel Challenge That Inspired The MQ CEO

Words by Harrison Read

In our third episode of 'CEOs in Unlikely Places', we met Lea Milligan at Bristol Temple Meads Station.

Lea is the CEO of MQ, The UK leading research charity on Mental Health.

He has worked in the charity sector for 20 years, collaborating with people and setting up projects all over the country.

Back in 2008 he challenged a colleague to see who could visit every county of England with their job.

After 6 weeks of travelling, it all ended at Bristol Temple Meads Train Station on Platform 8.

A place that still inspires his mission to bring people together and make a difference in the world.
